Saturday 23rd February – English National Cross-Country Championships

The Saucony English National Cross-Country Championships took place at Herrington Park, Sunderland.

Andrew reports:  a mud bath of a course, I don’t think I’ve ever finished a race covered with more mud head to toe.  I’ve looked back at the results from the last time the race was held on the same course & on exactly the same course the winner of 2007 finished in a time of 37.31.

Results here and Senior mens video and other races here.

  1. Andrew I have just seen the video and I have never seen so much muddy terrain in my life, in Sunderland it was much worse then the cross country in Huddersfield where I was running in a sea of mud, Andrew you deserve a medal just because you ran and finish the race in astonishing condition, and Jon as well deserve one.
