Four Northbrookers, one marshal and one supporter headed to Ilmington for the remaining race in this year’s winter series. Once more up the hill to claim the coveted gilet and the sausages. For some who were not on form this was a tough day at the office, while Tony had the best run of the series. Though this course is long and tough, when you are on form it has its merits.
It has been a great series again run in all weathers with great company and new friends made, I’m sure we all want a few months to get over it before the urge to run back up the hill raises its head again.
See you next year – Spencer
This event was rearranged from December after heavy snowfall. Unfortunately, the new event was a day after a tough cross country league race, but it provided good training on tired legs.

Ten Northbrookers headed over to a cold and chilly Chelmsley Wood for Race 4 in the Grand Prix series. It was slightly busier this time as it also hosted the Midlands Masters 5 mile handicap. With the temperature being so low you had to run hard to keep warm and wrap up very quickly afterwards.
Great runs all through the field with Julie not only achieving a pb but also getting 3rd in the handicap series with a bottle of bubbly to celebrate. It only got better when Bernard also won a prize in the raffle – Spencer
Starting and finishing in Cassiobury Park near the town centre the course took us out through some posh suburbs before crossing over the M25 to loop round some traffic clear country lanes before returning on the same route back into town. There were a number of VERY cheeky hills in the course so not one for PB attempts. A very well organised event and far more scenic than you would expect – Rob
