It’s great to see such strength in depth in Cumbrian Athletics at the minute.

Saturday’s Cumbria Cross Country Championships took place in Penrith over a 4 lap course on French Fields with some of the cream of the counties athletes racing over their respective distances from under 11 to the Senior ranks.

I won’t lie I wanted to get into the top 3 yesterday and finished just outside the medals in fourth, I’m a little disappointed but I can take away there wasn’t much separating the top half dozen or so- I think maybe the previous Tuesdays session was just too much and took a little more recovering from than I’d have liked.

Great to see James Douglas take the win over some you talent

This weekend seen my first back to back racing in a long time after Saturday’s cross country and yesterday’s road half.

I wasn’t 100% sure about racing on the road after finishing night shift and such a tough race at the County Champs but given it was more or less on my doorstep and I’d be going out for some road miles anyways I thought I might as well.

It was my first ever road half marathon, so I was destined for a PB what ever the outcome, I managed to run 69 minutes which wasn’t good enough for the win, Chris Holdsworth crossed the line in first in 68 minutes - after the first mile or two I knew I didn’t have it in my legs today and Chris pulled away, I lost concentration a little around mid way but put in a strong finish.

Thanks for all the shouts out on course and to Mark, everyone involved and Eventsupnorth for an enjoyable run out
