The Hunny Bell Cross Country

‘After the wet winter we have experienced the day of the Hunny Bell Cross Country was just about perfect.

Twenty seven RntS lined up at the start line ready in “some shape or form” to complete the challenging Cross Country course.

The course was dryer than it has been in the past but the warm wet winter meant having to pick the legs up over the long grass and leap over the mole hills. The climbs were long and energy sapping, the descents almost vertical and very short.

Marshalling was excellent, very encouraging and highly visible.

Also present at today’s event was the RntS supporters who did an excellent job of shouting encouragement and taking photographs.

The Hunny Bell Cross County has become one of the “must go” events for Runners-next-the-Sea and as Chairman I felt very proud of our membership today. ‘

Kevin (number 275)

Addendum: 3 RntS won their class and another 3 were either 2nd or 3rd in class. That is a very very good result. Another great race working for a very worthwhile cause – Break charity. Best wishes to Susie who had to retire at 3km due to injury. Here’s to a speedy recovery.
