Derbyshire Mini League XC, Race 2, Ilkeston

2 weeks 5 days ago #4018 by Jan Forrester
Rep by Dennis BelbinFive Mini MAC's made the journey to Ilkeston for round 2 of the XC mini league and amazingly the rain stopped for their races, which made the parents happy.
First up was Georgia Belbin running in the U11 girls race. Georgia had a very controlled run and a great finish to overtake 5 competitors in the last 200m and finished a credible 5th.
Next up were the other 3 MAC's Jacob Jones, Logan Fairey and Andrew Slater racing in the U11 boys. I'm not sure what happened round the back of the tennis courts but Jacob entered the section in 4th shadowing the front 3 and emerged 400m later with a 20m lead which he comfortably held onto for the race win. Next back with a strong run was Logan who finished in 5th, the final MAC was Andrew in only his 2nd XC, he had the important job of being the final counter for the team and did so in 14th place after a good battle with 3 other runners most of the way round, he ran the whole race with a smile on his face which was great to see. The 3 finishers have surely put MAC in the driving seat for the team prize.
Well done Bruno Kinlen who represented MAC in the U15 Boys.
The next, and final race of the series, is on Saturday 14th December at Moor ways Stadium, Derby from 11am it would be lovely to see more of the juniors turn out and race for the Club.
