11/02/17 Northbrook Stay up in Birmingham League Division 2
Going into the final race of the series on 11 February with a home fixture at Coundon Hall Park, the men were 884 points and 4 teams away from the relegation zone so were looking to keep their place in Division 2 going into the next series.
The club's course setter Tony French had designed a new course for Race 4 that includes some new features as well as retaining the old favourites.
Despite the snow wind and rain, Northbrook Men came in 14th on the day to finish 12th overall in the series. The Men's B Team finished 7th on the day for an overall 7th series place.
In the women's race, another great performance was put in by the team at Warwick University. Amanda Deavy returned for her first race in over three months and put in a storming performance. The combined effort led to the masters' team finishing first on the day and second in the season. An astounding performance by every runner across the four league games resulted in the ladies finishing in 4th position overall, cruelly missing out on promotion by just 11 points.
