Parliament Hill London 21/02/2015

This was a tough course with two circuits up Parliament Hill in London, a total distance of 11.2Km. The competition was fierce as expected in a National Cross Country Championships as the first 20 placed runners were eligible for an England vest in future international cross country races.

I was very pleased to run well in difficult muddy conditions and finish 25th in a field of over 2000 runners with a time of 40:53.

Whilst I missed out by about 10 seconds on a top 20 place, it gives me a great incentive to improve further on my current form.
