National XC Championships

Parliament Hill was the venue for the 2012 National Cross Country Championship on Saturday where the UK’s finest XC athletes meet on the national stage to contest the gruelling 12km of climbs, mud and endless hills, it’s also where the likes of Paula Radcliffe and Mo Farah have competed in the past which gives an insight into the high level of competition & is regarded as one of the world’s finest Cross Country events.

This is the first time that Newmarket Joggers have entered a team and our Fab 4 did not disappoint by putting in startling performances to ensure that Newmarket Joggers are now highly regarded not only on the county stage but nationally also.

First home for the club was Paul Holley in 43:05 (305th position) next was Matthew Harvey in 43:13 (316) Jamie Shaw 43:52 (373) and Vincent Coogan 47:19 (658). Well done guys you did the club and yourselves proud.
