Barrow Runners

The 'Run'down - 22nd October 2017

A weekend of cross country mud with some Runners turning out Saturday and Sunday in Barrow colours. A particular mention to Lucy Bird and Simon Cole on their successful 100 mile event.

Also a big thanks to Andy Price for pulling together the results from the XC events for this week's 'Run'down.

Midlands Counties Cross Country Relay Championship

The 43rd Midlands Counties cross country relays were held in the grounds of Aldersley stadium at Wolverhampton. The course was 6km (2 x 3km loops) and wasn't too muddy or hilly (unfortunately for some)!

After several junior races the senior and masters (men and women) all ran together at 2pm with Barrow entering 2 seniors and 1 masters team consisting of (in relay leg order):

Senior A

  • Sam Cleveland
  • James Smith
  • Andy Price
  • Ian Cox

Senior 2

  • Gaz Sharlott
  • Ian Fisk
  • Rick Hill
  • Rob Beers


  • Barrie Edmunds
  • Kevin Gamble
  • Brian Geeson
  • Matt Richardson

In the senior mens race there were 33 clubs who entered 61 teams whilst there were 14 clubs entering 23 teams in the masters category. All Barrow teams ran well considering the blustery conditions and in a high quality field from the East and West Midlands.

No results published yet.

Bagworth Heath Derby Runner XC 22/10/17

A lot of Runners were away for the bank holiday and with a few injuries we managed to field a full men's and women's team. The altered course, shorter than usual, was even shorter after a mistake by a marshal, but it was made tough by the strong wind.
