27 reds took part in the Crocodile8 this weekend, a 8.8mile race starting from Burghill School across a hilly and challenging multi-terrain course of road, grass & plenty of mud, not forgetting those steps, yes those steps slap bang in the middle!

After a morning of torrential showers the sun made an appearance just in time for the race to begin & the sea of red to get going!

Barry Reynolds was the first Courier past the line finishing in 2nd place in 57:35 (Also 1st M45) finishing behind winner & former Courier Eliot Taylor, Matt James got himself onto the podium finishing in 3rd place in a great time 58:07, Ross Cameron continues to impress and was our 3rd team member home in 1:02:44 to pick up the team prize!

Couriers Tim Taylor & Nikki Tyler had fine runs picked up awards in V55 Men & V45 Female categories adding to some great performances club by members old & new. A fantastic well organised event with encouraging number of reds & great preparation for the Hereford Cross Country League races starting next month!
