Ryde Harrier XC Champ’s

The first in a series of three Ryde Harriers XC races fell on Sunday 22nd January. This opener was the Ryde Harriers XC Championships which was open to guests for a sum of £5. It had been freezing conditions the week running up to the race, so the usual flooding had been replaced with surface water, mud and generally better than usual conditions.

ryde xcThe men ran 7 miles and the women and juniors ran 5 miles, the race started at Smallbrook stadium in Ryde, headed out across fields, over styles and through ploughed fields returning to finish in Smallbrook.  Map of womens 5.11 mile route.
