We kicked off our first Cross Country event at Ickworth House, Bury St Edmunds, this Sunday 26January 2014.
The course had taken a pounding with therain leaving some boggy but interesting sections.
Just over 170 runners turned out to bravethe cold and take on the mud. With a simple start, runners took to a sectionover grass, which in places offered small pools of water to splash through. With the mud increasing with every step,the course led the runners round some undulating terrain, across a trickybridge and up a slippery slope.All that was left was to battle through thepark area and then make the decision whether to go again for a second lapmaking the total distance 10km. The course must have been enjoyable as so manyrunners took this option. As the runners crossed the line, they picked up their goody bag and a well earned medal.
The rain managed to stay off just aboutlong enough for the runners to finish, which ended the day nicely for allinvolved.
We are set up to do it all again in fourweeks for todays runners to come back and beat their time, or for anyone whomissed out on todays opportunity.
