As always, great care should be taken in interpreting Cross Country race times.  Unlike running tracks, course layouts vary enormously.  One race may involve multiple laps of a hilly course with tight bends; another may be a single circuit of a flat course with gentle sweeping turns.  With inconsistent measurement of courses leading to inaccurate reporting of race distances, it is extremely difficult to compare performances from different venues.  Even when events are held over the same course, ankle-deep mud or ground like concrete frequently impact hugely on race times. 

Thanks also to Mike Sharpe who has sent through some photos from Round 1 of the KCAA Cross Country league at Swanley on 6th October.
