A number of events were cancelled due to the effects of Storm Eunice. The Bournemouth 10 was one of the unlucky events (again).
Hampshire League Cross Country
Our hardy cross-country members were not deterred by the weather conditions, and travelled to a windy and muddy Popham airfield for the final fixture in the winter Hampshire series. Well done all – we got some terrific results!
Erin Wells and Mark Ruby came first in their events and also came top in their individual aggregate positions. The senior men’s team consolidated their place on top of Division 2, so they gain promotion to Division 1 next season.
- Emma Henderson-Bishop was 611th in a chip time of 58:57
