Dennis Belbin reps on the MAC Juniors -
Saturday saw the final race in the North Midlands XC series at Wollaton Park and 7 Mini MAC's made the trip across the border to Nottinghamshire to fly the Matlock AC flag.
First out as usual was Georgia in the U11 girls who had a solid race to finish 27th place in a large field.
The next race saw the U11 boys, Jacob Jones, Will Croft, Logan Fairey and Andrew Slater take to the start line. There was a real chance of some individual and team medals on the cards. Will and Jacob were neck and neck down the finishing straight with Jacob just pinching 2nd place. Logan was the final counter for the team event in 13th. Andrew continued his amazing improvement throughout the season in 34th; I think he'll be a force in next year's series.
All this meant that the team won the series - well done boys. After a stewards enquiry Jacob finished 2nd over all and Will joint 3rd.
Next to don the baby blue was Ellen Corke in the U13 girls, she had to run 2 small laps (twice the distance of the U11's) Ellen produced a really strong 2nd lap to come in 19th.
Last on the day for MAC juniors was Amelia Corke in the U15 girls who had even further to run (one small and one medium lap) also running at the same time was the U13 boys. Amelia used the boys to help pace her round to a credible 20th position, again putting in a very strong 2nd lap.
Great fun was had by all over the series and all the runners were a credit to the club in their performances and how they carried themselves. The future is full of promise!
