Midland XC Champs – Wollaton Hall
6 of K&D’s men turned out at the wonderful Wollaton Hall for the Midlands XC. 12km, 12 BIG hills, Bogs and a stately home played host. Mixed fortunes befell the team. Chairman Darren ran well for 6km before major stomach gremlins left him having to jog/walk most of the way home. Despite dropping 67 places between 8k and 12k due to his issues he finished in 169th – he PR’d to the portaloo though.
Behind him the team dug in and ran tightly. Men’s Captain Torsten made a return from injury, Pete did the driving, Greg made us feel old and Max got stuck in before our National XC day trip in February. The team finished in 26th overall out of 38 teams. A decent return for the K&D gents among the 473 finishers.
