Northern Cross Country Championships – 30 January 2016
Conditions were tough from the start of the first race with muddy water logged ground, strong winds and the temperature not much above zero, the mud made the course very difficult to run on. The U17 women’s race was off first with Molly Butterworth representing Doncaster AC.
99 Athletes took part, the winning time was 18:26 by Kate Waugh, Birtley AC. Molly finished in 43rd place with a time of 21:17.
Next up for Doncaster AC was George Westerman in the U15 boys race.
168 athletes took part, the winning time was 14:35 by Josh Cowperthwaite of Middlesbrough AC. George finished in 79th place with a time of 16:46.
The U17 Men’s race was off at 1pm with George Phillips and Rhys Gibson running for Doncaster AC. The race had 105 athletes take part and the winning time was 19:15 by Scott Beattie. George finished in 21st place with a time of 21:02. Rhys finished in 50th place with a time of 22:16.
The ladies race had a hail storm and the ground was totally churned up by now. The race had 358 runners in it and the winning time was 30:21 by Claire Duck of Leeds City AC. Rose James finished in 207th place, with a time of 43:41.
The final race was the men’s race, three very reluctant DAC runners made it to the start line to run 12km of mud, hail, wind and freezing temperatures. We also had an additional hill to tackle, saved just for the senior men, the course profile is shown below.
719 runners took part and the winning time was 43:16 by Charlie Hulson of Sale Harriers. Wayne Martison finished in 303rd place with a time of 59:06. Martin James finished in 368th place in 1:01:55 and Peter Simpson finished in 376th place with a time of 1:02:15
