Somerhill Cross Country

 

The second round of the KCAA Kent League Cross Country series took place on Saturday 27th October 2012. Once again, Thanet Roadrunners AC laid on a coach for those club athletes taking part, along with their supporters. In stark contrast to Round 1’s warm sunshine at Swanley Park, Tonbridge served up biting winds and a temperature barely above zero. A large oak tree was TRAC base camp for the afternoon and with freezing showers threatening, we were all grateful for the shelter it provided.

The course at Somerhill School is testing at any time, but heavy rain in the preceding days made it even more of a challenge than usual. Some of the hills were extremely slippery and many runners finished covered in mud, having fallen during their races.

The performances achieved by the Thanet Roadrunners AC members were as follows:
