Oxon XC race 3

Wokingham Half Marathon – February 25th

Mike Shipway reports “A star-studded field set off on this popular flattish course race, which included two of our leading 50-year-olds, Rob Webster and Dave Cantwell. James Bolton decided not to run on this day on account of a niggling injury. Both men did really well, easily ducking under the anticipated 90-minute mark with Rob pipping Dave by a couple of minutes.”

Bourton-on-Water 10k – February 25th

Meanwhile in picturesque Cotswoldy Bourton-on-Water, the fast out-and-back course attracted a strong contingent of ten Harriers, with three under 40 minutes, including David Watkinson in second M55 spot. Sarah Kerswell was fourth lady L55.

Oxon XC race 4 – February 4th

There was a rather disappointing Club turnout at Cotswold Farm Park (near Guiting Power) with just 6 athletes taking part in the Senior & Vet Men’s and Women’s races.

In the men’s competition it was “the usual suspects” who battled it out for honours led by James Bolton who was once again first MV50 to finish. Tom Preskett outgunned Adam Smith this time round and David Watkinson and Dave Cantwell both finished well up in the MV55 standings.

Liz O’Farrell fought a lone battle in the Senior Women’s race but still managed to cross the finishing line with a smile.

The last race in the series will be at Henley Showground on the 3rd of March so, hopefully, we can finish with a bang.

Oxon XC race 3 – January 7th

Round three of the Oxon Cross-Country League took place at an extremely soggy Shotover Park (Horspath) due to recent heavy storms. It was run in conjunction with the 2023 Oxon XC Championships. Over 800 athletes competed in all events with over 500 in the two senior races.

James Bolton led home our men again with the returning Adam Smith heading the remaining Harriers just 3 seconds ahead of Tom Preskett who was seeking to overhaul him in the final sticky dash, but just failed.

David Watkinson continued his excellent form to lead home Dave Cantwell and James Groves who continued to act out their own personal battle. Rob Webster did well in his second series run and Phil Horgan found out just what some Cross-Country events can be like with his second steady run. Well done to Chairman Neil for his steadfast grit and determination.

In the women’s race, Rachel Masser shook off her previous XC injury and, as a WV45, took most of the field to the cleaners. Our 2023 Club Handicap Competition winner Lizzie Welsh finished ahead of newcomer Kirsty Lee who had an excellent debut XC run ahead of the improving Claire Court and Liz O’Farrell.
