Springfield Cross Country 23/02/2003

Off to edney common just outside Chelmsford for this race, I got there just in time so it wasn't the best preparation. But I was on the line in time, even though I didn't have a full set of spikes in.

The pace at the start was too much for me, and I dropped back a bit, but it turned out that the pace was too fast for the others as they dropped back and I managed to push into second place. Gradually though I lost ground to the leader, but I managed to hold the gap between myself and those chasing me to come in second with a few hundred yards to spare. Ben came in 4th to make it a very good result for Mid Essex Casuals.
