Redcar Rugby Club Cross Country

Race Reports

It seems like forever since our Junior Harriers took part in any real outdoor competition, so as restrictions eased last weekend it was fantastic to see some of them in action once again

Redcar Rugby Club hosted a cross country competition open to Athletic Clubs within the Tees Valley area.  However, in order to comply with current guidelines there were still certain restrictions in place. For example, the course included an ‘out’ and ‘back’ section which were taped off to maintain 2m between athletes running in opposite directions.  There were also staggered starts with groups of 4 starting at 10 second intervals, with the fastest groups heading off first.  All in all, a very well organised event under the circumstances, and as usual our Juniors did themselves proud.  Here’s how they got on….

Some excellent performances as you can see.  We’re sure we’ll be seeing lots more of this bunch as we ease into the Track and Field season and hopefully see restrictions lifted even further.  Well done to all who took part.
