MID LANCS XC No 5 – Leigh Sports Village. 10 th February 2019
Fortunately the winds abated in the afternoon and the rain held off so it was a great day for cross country running. The course is predominately flat but with sections through woods and along embankments as well as open country it is quite interesting. There was less mud than previous years but a narrow twisty section through trees proved tricky. Full results on our cross country page.
The third Mid-Lancs fixture returned to Hyndburn after a break of two years. The heavy rain ensured there was plenty of mud underfoot and the twisty, narrow woodland course made staying on one’s feet really tricky. Provisional results and championship standings are available on our cross country page.
The Wesham Road Road Runners Cross Country Presentation will be held at the cricket club after the run on Monday 26th March at around 8.20pm.
Jason will be putting on chips and sandwiches so it’s well worth attending.
The fifth Mid-Lancs fixture took us back to a rarely used venue which although in a park setting was an interesting course with some testing uphill pulls and muddy sections. The sunny, wind-less day gave a hint of spring in the air to lift the spirits.
The results and latest standings are online now.
The fifth Mid-Lancs XC fixture takes place at Ryelands Park, Lancaster this coming Saturday – 17th February. The course is predominately flat but there will be muddy patches. Spikes are best, if you have them.
The women run 6k and start at 14.00.
The men run 9.6k and start at 14.30.
You must run in a Wesham vest and if you haven’t got your Mid-Lancs number yet you can pick it up from me at the Wesham tent on the day. Brews are served in the tent after the race.
The first six home count for the men’s team and the first four home count for the ladies team.
If you would like to car share meet at the cricket club at 12.15.
Hope to see you there.

The fourth Mid-Lancs fixture was run on a cold dry Saturday with a cool breeze. The recent dry spell meant the course held firm with only a few soft patches, and the lack of mud and flattish ground lead to some fast times. Continue reading
