The English National Cross Country Championships was held at the beautiful venue of Wollaton Park in Nottingham. The weather was sunny but very breezy and the course was varied and challenging including log jumps and stream crossings.
There were many records broken, from the number attending the event to record fields of finishers from the 10 races in the programme. There were over 10,000 spectators and entrants at the event and this made for a fantastic atmosphere. The first Ilkley Harrier to race was George Hardesty (U15 Boy) Who finished 282nd in a time of 17:45.
The Junior Women's race was next, Georgia Malir ran well to finish in 8th position in a time of 22:39. This race was won by Georgia Taylor Brown in a time of 21:03 who led from start to finish and had nearly a minute on the chasing pack of which Georgia Malir was part. There was a record number of finishers in this race 134.
In the Under 13 girl's race there was again a record number of finishers, 431, and the Ilkley girls came 47th team. Individual results were 116th Bethan Morley 13:28, 295th Emily Elmes 14:44, 316th Eva Jeffels 14:50, 361st Ella Shouler Harris 15:20 and Alessandra Ricci 402nd in 14:04.
The Ilkley Under 15 Girls finished 25th team being led home by Lucy Haines 94th in 17:46 with Tilly Melechi in 146th position in a time of 18:11, 178th Jemima Elgood 18:27, 296th Georgia Flaxman 20:49, 302nd Molly Jeffels 20:49 and Elizabeth Westhead 311th in 20:54.
The Under 13 Boys race was the last junior race of the day with another record number of entrants, 385. The two Ilkley boys ran brilliantly and gained fantastic finishing positions of 72nd Euan Brennan in 12:11 and Dominic Coy 188th in 13:00
Next were the senior races, the Women's race finished a record number of competitors 708. Ilkley had three women in this event. Sally Morley ran well and came in 54th in 31:49, Allison Ricci 536th in 42:57 and Julie Elmes 641st in 47:08.
Ilkley had two men in the spectacular finale to the day. Stephen Coy was 728th in 47:37 and Will Buckton also ran ( but I can t find his result).
The whole day was very exciting and well organized a fantastic event to take part in, a definite for me next year!

I had been told this (BL 32.2km/1220m )was harder than the Three Peaks, and I wasn't disappointed. A real battle through energy sapping bogs and tussocks, with a strong headwind thrown in for good measure. Photos on Woodentops

Dick Waddington reports ... Good weather, but icy on the flagstones over Ilkley Moor and boggy everywhere else - if there were a team prize, I reckon we'd have won it.
