Women Retain BUCS XC Title

The Loughborough Women’s team put up a great display, decisively retaining the BUCS title won last year – with 4 athletes among the top 11 of 704 finishers, headed by Jess Judd in 5th place…. and with an all-time Loughborough record number of participants. Joanne Hickman-Dunn and Amy Griffiths also secured top 10 finishes in the 9th and 10th with Abbie Donnelly in 11th as the women’s squad finished well I front of Birmingham & Edinburgh

The Loughborough Men’s team in the short (7.9k) non-Championship race also came through victorious – with 2nd and 3rd placed individuals and our 4 scorers all among the top 8 finishers. Our next quartet also did well and were the top placing ‘B team’ in that race in 5th place overall among the 561 finishers. How BUCS can justify a policy of ‘no BUCS points’ for this race – with so many enthusiastic participants involved annually and a lot of real talent at the front end of the field – appears to defy any acceptable explanation.

Unfortunately the Loughborough team in the Men’s Championship race was disqualified for a technical offence in registration ( they would have come second behind St Mary’s) to put a bit of a dampener on the day and nullify a fine top ten performance by Will Fuller.
