With the lure of a hoodie for a £20 entry fee off we went on a very cold wet windy day. l managed to lose my water bottle before the start but that was the least of my worries, with talk of lots of hills and high winds, not to mention the cold. I decided to start my watch and, with wearing a long sleeve top, I didn't look at it again until the finish. This was a first for me, as with lots of problems with my hips and a longer race in December I just needed to finish. We enjoyed the hills and high winds for most of the race, and my legs kicked in at 10 miles I'm happy to say. So I left Chris and kicked on with the last long hill at 12.5 ish miles as no watch to help me on my way. A very well-run race and a v nice hoodie each, well earned for us both - Linda

Six brave Northbrookers set out to climb what felt like the face of a
mountain in cold and wet conditions. What followed was a cat and mouse run
between Tony, Paul and me. Tony had the running of us both all of the
way from the start of the hill to half way back down the other side. Gravity
took over and I gained enough momentum to take the lead back, Paul followed
shortly after but true to form Tony picked his pace up on the final climb
back to the finish. This gave Tony 3rd in his age category. A special mention
for Anne who is getting closer to her goal of sub 1 hour. Well done all
Women's 5 Mile:
Northbrook Women 10th place, 172 points
Men's 7 Mile:
Northbrook Men 12th place, 579 points
Eleven Northbrookers made their way to Bulwell Park in Nottingham for
the 5- and 7-mile cross-country championships. We were met with a
very good course, a club house with heating, ample seating, catering and
even a licensed bar. Weather wise, it was crisp, not very breezy and sunny.
The course was flat apart from one hill which was a sharp up and down followed
by a ditch. The women went first and made the ditch party look easy;
for me it was the best line I could find every lap. Overall we fielded two
complete teams (the only Coventry club to turn up) and great runs
from everyone who took part - Spencer
Brian and I completed the 16.5 miles of mud, rain, road and hills that compose
this 12th Seagrave Wolds annual challenge for runners and walkers. There were
513 finishers altogether.
As usual plenty of refreshments were available en route and soup/crumble and custard for all finishers. It is a friendly event in aid of local charities, and is a major annual social occasion for the people of Seagrave, who give up their time (and cooking skills).
This is a recommended run for those who love a bit of trail - it’s been on our calendar for some years now - Claudie
Northbrook Women Overall 10th,
Northbrook Women Masters 6th
Good performances by all who participated put the team in 10th position in Division 2 (all age groups), and 6th in the Masters race.
Well done everyone - Clare
Men's 'A' Team 11th, 482 points
Mens' 'B' Team 10th, 1056 points
The first Birmingham League race of the season at Newbold Comyn was met with keen anticipation by Northbrook's 27 men, with only Division 2 present at this venue this year. After watching the ladies run triumphantly we prepared. Our first season back up and our aim is to avoid relegation. The weather was cold and drizzly, but the big news was "no ditch"!!! - removed on health and safety grounds. So 3 laps, 3 times up to the beacon (they moved it further back each time) and 3 times round the ditch diversion. This was never going to be an easy task, but we all had parts to play. Whether we were "A" counters, "B" counters or letting those counters know we wanted their positions we all performed out of our spikes. There were groups of Northbrook vests having their own battles all through the field, pushing each other on. There were smiles, laughing and shell shocked faces afterwards (just pain etched on faces all the way around) and rightly so because our first race and we are mid table, in 11th position ou of 17 in this division. I hate to say it but we require it all again gents, you have until the 3rd of December to recover. A big thank you to the supporters for the day, the ladies for sticking around to cheer and shout abuse at us, the injured runners who came along to make sure we knew we were never alone out there and for the two gents who helped sort us all out on the day. You made our task more worthwhile - Spencer

A sunny but very cold morning In Chelmsley Wood for the first of the Centurion
Grand Prix races saw five of us turn out to represent the sunburst. This year
we ran the course in reverse with a different start place. As usual I set
off too fast and Simon made me pay for it after 2 miles. As he disappeared
into the distance I dug deep and got on with the task in hand. I was a surprise
to just break 35 mins, obviously a good day for me. Everyone else had fantastic
results with a PB and a positional place. This is a great series for those
who want to do a race a month over the winter months - Spencer

At the now traditional opener to the Northbrook XC season, we ventured down the A45 to Warwick University for their annual XC relay event to show the young upstarts how to run cross-country. Five teams braved the long journey and we came up trumps with two podium finishes in the Men's and Mixed team category.
