THE BROMSGROVE & REDDITCH Athletic Club men took part in the Birmingham League Division Two cross country competition in Leamington on Saturday and were rewarded with three athletes appearing in the top 20 out of a field of 216.

The race was won by Cannock & Staffordshire athlete Chris Perrin in a time of 35.12, whilst B&R’s first athlete home was Rich Lomas, who finished 14th in 37.59.

Next in for the club was Adam Lloyd on his first cross country outing for the club, which resulted in him finishing in a fantastic 18th place with a time of 38.30.

Hot on his heels was David Gemmell (19th, 38.34) and then came Simon Lanckham (38.46) in 25th place, followed by Mark Appleton (55th, 41.31), Andrew Freeman (58th, 41.38), Kevin Lanckham (65th, 42.12), Mark Graham (106th, 44.25), Darryll Thomas (111th, 44.40), Dean Hartshorne (113th, 44.45), Paul Atkins (119th, 45.15), Philip Richardson (137th, 46.29), Jamie Dancyger (162nd, 49.25), Phil Anderson (167th, 49.38) and Ian Nutter (170th, 49.49).

Congratulations to B&R member Matt Hawcroft who, on November 4, won the Marlow Half Marathon in a time of 1h:16.20, just over a minute faster than the second placed athlete Hajimi Ohsawa (1h:17.49).

Heavy rain meant the course was flooded in many places and at one point athletes had to run through freezing water about a foot deep before climbing for a mile where the water flowed down the road like a stream.

This was a well deserved win in incredibly difficult conditions.
