The 2018 Club Summer Handicap series kicked off on Wednesday 4 April. On a chilly night the circular anti-clockwise course starting and finishing in Butt Lane, familiar to Club regulars, provided an interesting challenge to some of the newer members and guests. In all 83 registered runners took part.
Ros Myers was first Northbrook member home, winning the women's prize. Rory Anderson in 4th place was first Northbrook man.

Race 4 on 10 February at Ullwood Park, Cheltenham marked a disappointing end to the 2017/2018 Birmingham League season for Northbrook men. Finishing in 16th place on the day and with an overall 16th place, just one place from the bottom, means it's down to Division 3 next season. The men's B team finished well up the rankings with an 8th place on the day and an 8th place overall.
Turnout from Northbrook throughout the season has been good and consistent, due in no small part to the efforts of motivational Team Captain Spencer.
A similar fate befell Northbrook women's team in their final Divison 1 race of the Midland Women's Cross-Country League at Aldersley Stadium, Wolverhampton on the same day. Finishing in 15th position out of 15 teams they too are headed down, to Division 2 next season. In the Masters rankings Northbrook women finished well up in 9th place.
Overall then, not the best end to the league season but, as Arnie might have said "We'll be back".
The opportunity to do just that starts with the first race of the 2018/19 League season on 10 November. Check out all the Cross-Country League dates.
