Saturday saw the English Cross Country Relay Championships at Berry Park, Mansfield, where they have been staged since 1989. Over 1,000 were entered from all over the country, including many top class athletes. The rain cleared for the races but not before the course had become very muddy and technical. There are 10 races of varying lengths for U13 Girls through to Senior Men. MAC had a team of 4 in the Senior Men Category, 4 legs x 5k each leg. The winners were Tonbridge AC A Team in 1.03.11. MAC (Matt Haywood, Carl Dyke, Geoff Cooper and Mike Blair) finished in 119th in 1.21.56, from a very strong field of 170 teams. In the U15 Girls’, 3 legs x 2k each leg, the winners were Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC A Team in 21.59 and MAC (Lizzie Webster, Michaela Dick and Charlotte Bradshaw) finished in a very respectable 36th place in 24.38. There were 101 teams.
