With just over half way through this season's CC6 races here is the latest on the Winchester runners and riders in the firiendliest cross country league. It is perhaps one of the best season's for Winchester for some time! Can we continue our success, perhaps you can help?
With 5 races completed and only 3 to go, both Winchester men and women are proving very competitive in the CC6 races. By way of introduction the races take place on Sunday mornings typically over 4 to 5 miles, are free to enter for all club members regardless of ability.
Individual results are compiled from the athletes 4 best results in one season. So the following women runners best 3 results so far are:
Suzy Perry 2nd, Penny Freeman 5th, Charlotte Hoskins 7th, Emma Carter 8th, and Liz Marshall 20th. As a result the women are leading the team rankings ahead of Lordshill and Stubbington.
The men's results offer strength in depth with new(ish) comer to CC6 Alex Whiting 8th heading up the list, Andy Parkinson 14th, debutante Jono Brown 15th, Steve Oliver 33rd, Colin McManus 36th, Saul Duck 47th, Stephen Lowy 52nd, Andy Robinson 59th, Steve Cluett 63rd and Pete Watts 81st. Improving results now mean the men's team are 2nd, behind Lordshill, but ahead of Southampton Tri (who still have a discard) and Southampton AC. The women are reigning team champions, but the men's team have not bothered the podium in recent years so its great to see some competitive performances. Keep it up!
The next race is at Kings Garnier Gutter, Stoney Cross near Janesmoor Pond in the New Forest on 20th January 9.30am. 4.5 miles of trail and paths in the rolling National Park. Be sure to bring your club vest and some trail shoes. A perfect introduction to race running. http://cc6.co.uk
