A busy weekends racing for Hemel members competing in events up and down the UK. Sunday saw our own Club National Event at the Snow Centre. Saturday was the Bromley Club National and the GBR 3 race at Braehead in Glasgow. Sunday, in Braehead was the indoor Scottish Championships.
The Hemel Club National took place on Sunday with an entry of 147 racers, this was down on last year by nearly 50 people. A good, slick run event which stayed to the timetable all day. Courses were set by Jon Reidy, Nia Jenkins and Matt Thompson. The format followed the normal CN indoor race. For the U14+, 2 runs aggregated for awards, both though seeded separately. For the U12 we held 3 runs through the stubbies with 1 run to count. This was followed by the ERSA GS. A very big thank you to the Snow centre for their sponsorship and to all the helpers that helped make the day a success. We had the top 16 in the girls/ladies event and the top 8 in the boys/men event.
