Report from Bob Foreman -At Moorways, Derby it was more freeze dried than fry-up for the 9 Mac juniors who braved the cold to take part in the final race of the Derbyshire XC Mini League on a tough course which contained a couple of sharp ascents and a tricky wooded section.
First up it was the U11 girls with Ellen Corke finishing 9th and Georgia Belbin 14th.
The U11 boys saw Alex Currie in 2nd and Jacob Jones 3rd.
Next was the U13 girls with Olivia Allen finishing 6th and Caitin McCloy 8th.
In the U13 boys Sam Sargeant was 7th and Matthew Foreman 13th.
The U15 girls saw Amelia Corke in 6th place.
A great effort by all Junior MAC's and especially by Alex and Jacob whose excellent runs today saw them finish 2nd and 3rd in the overall league placings and also by Olivia who finished 2nd overall.
Unsurprisingly, Derby Athletic Club won all team competitions overall, partly due to the numbers they have running in each age group and therefore not picking up penalty points.
I am certain that next year if we can have as least 3 runners in each race our talented Juniors could give them a run for their money
