2019 Cross Country Championships

The conditions were perfect for the annual cross country champs being held on Kemp’s Farm, 17 Valley at the base of Weld Pass.  The course was made up of a 1 km, 2 km and a 3 km loop which was testing in places and mostly dry underfoot, although the creeks had just enough water to ensure feet got wet.  A lot of members were absent and numbers were low in all categories except veteran men and veteran women, who were competing over 8 km and 6 km respectively.  The field spread out reasonably quickly from the start as all competitors in all grades started together, including the walkers.  Although the junior boys and girls numbers were low there was still some good competition going on.

It was mentioned that the little hills in the first lap seemed to become mountains in the second.

An excellent day of competition with reciprocal banter afterwards.
