Snr Men Southern Champs Parliament Hill The Start

Mon 28th Jan 2019

WADAC snr men enjoyed some great conditions to finish 23rd team (out of 77) at the Southern XC Championships held at Parliament Hill Fields in London on 26th Jan 2019.

The Southerns are one of the highlights of the cross-country season and Parliament Hill fields is an iconic venue with "that hill" at the start and a well earned reputation for testing conditions.  Drawing the top athletes from all over the South of England the Southern's are always very competitive - this year there were over 1150 competitors and 77 clubs with complete 6 man teams. 

We were delighted to be travelling to the event in some strength with a well balanced team of 13 athletes....comfortable for the 6-man Southerns but also sparking talk of a separate 12-man side competition for the Hampshire's been a few years since that has been mentioned!

George King (Craggs) led the way with a fine Top 50 finish, great packing from the Berliners (Coveney) and Team Vosser (Vosser) plus a smattering of vets (Coveney) was a true cross-section of our club and finishing as 23rd team in that event is a great result.  Well done guys and good luck to those also contesting the National XC Champs next month.
