Reepham Cross Country

OK. So its cold (icy), wet (two river crossings), and muddy (a 25mtr mud bath and a couple of mud filled trenches to jump). It shouldn’t be fun.

But it is!

Once again, RntS put up a good showing at the Reepham Cross Country today. The first frosty and icy day of the year typically! It’s surprising how many comments were made about us running in white tops (although they weren’t when we finished).

Definitely an event worth doing. A very friendly event, well organised and a good laugh. In fact, Lorraine said that even she would consider doing it next year!

Thank you to the hardy support team who cheered us on whilst standing in the cold.

Norfolk Athletics XC Race 3 – Thetford

Thetford Cross Country. Perfect weather for racing today and a challenging course. Very little flat, it all seemed to be up or down, with mole hills, on firm ground. Marshals were excellent with encouragement at every turn. There was a good turnout of runners but the field soon became spread out so there were no bottlenecks or hold ups. RntS members enjoyed the event and Amanda our Captain was pleased with our efforts.
