Last weekend the cross country season was brought to a close with the most challenging of courses. Set on the rolling hills of Royston Heath. This meant runners with either hyper ventilating up a hill or down the 5.5 mile course, with very few flats to recover in between. As to be expected Freedom Tri had an impressive turn out with everything to play for in the last race of the season, with 5 Freedom league points up for grabs too. The combined results were as follows: 32nd Matt Sayers 38:22; 36th James Parsons 38:35; 80th James Thomas 42:08; 100th Ben Field 43:25; 102nd Paul Fairchild 43:35; 112th Chris Clark 44:08; 113th Adam Jenkins 44:10; 133rd Tracey Palmieri 45:27; 156th Rachel Carling 47:37; 180th Bettina West 49:07; 230th Adrian Robinson 52:08; 247th Matt Cotter 53:54; 308th Richard Pitcairn 58:49; 316th James Knight 60:06; with 317th Jane Britten 60:07. Huge congratulations to all, but especially the women's masters team who resulted in coming FIRST out of twenty teams! Not bad for a triathlon club!
