DRC Cross Country Championship

22/02/2016

On a wet and chilly Sunday afternoon, five hardie DRC members took to the wet, muddy and slippy playing fields around Annan Academy for the annual ADAC cross country......... 

 

With high tides and poor weather forecast, organisers made the wise choice to switch venues from Everholm to the Academy.  Whilst these playing fields weren't at risk of being totally flooded, they did have a fair bit of water logged sections and muddy, slippy areas to knock runners off their stride and sap the energy from their legs.

DRC were represented in the men's field by Alan Baxter who battled with several runners including local lady Nicola Hood who is no stranger to winning Cross Country Races.  Alan hung on in the early stages before pushing on and taking the lead for a rare and welcome victory, picking up the winners trophy, the D&G championship medal and also the DRC Cross Country Championship.  Second home from DRC was Ranjit Thomas who enjoys the off-road scene and got just reward for his efforts.  David Burns made up the podium for the DRC Cross Country Championship and was pleased to get a tough run under his belt.  Close behind was Frank Skachill running well and enjoying the outing.

On the ladies side Fiona Jardine was the sole DRC representative and was crowned DRC Cross Country Champion for 2016.  Fiona had a strong run and was also picked up an age group prize for first F45.

Thanks to all who made the short trip to run in poor conditions to run at Annan and thanks to ADAC for another great day of Cross Country running.
