30/01/2022 - Up & down & up &... etc.

Another Sunday, and time for the penultimate cross-country race of the season! On a chilly but bright morning, 23 in blue took to the slaloms of @malloryparkcircuit

Whilst the conditions underfoot were dry, a stark contrast to the mud at most @thederbyrunner league events, the hills were beastly, barely running a few hundred metres without being faced with another one to tackle.

A huge well done to every single runner out there! Those two laps looked like seriously hard work but you conquered! I hope there’s been a good roast on the go this afternoon to support your all important refuel! 😍

But our epic team didn’t let that stop them, pride and courage in every step. Our XC league is truly a team effort, every single runner making a difference. Whilst the quickest eight men, and quickest four women make up the score, we vitally need every other team member to get the best position they possibly can to push back other teams points scorers 😝

So if some fun on the trails sounds like your thing, grab your grippiest shoes and join us for some character building laughs on the 6th March!
