Race 5 – Badger Farm – 8th January

Very many thanks to WADAC, SAC & SRS for putting on today’s show!  We liked the new route with the varied terrain.  If you could just do something about that uphill finish…

Here are today’s comments:

  • from what I heard it was another great bundle of fun up hills and through puddles!
  • A lot more mud today than yesterday’s Hampshire XC Championships, great to see lots of runners doubling up and running both races this weekend.  Thank you to the supportive marshals.
  • Thanks to Winchester, Southampton and the Running Sisters for this morning’s CC6. We enjoyed the new course, despite the slippery conditions.
  • The new course this morning was tough going but enjoyable. I think the new section is an improvement on previous years and added plenty of challenge in the form of mud!  Thanks to the organisers, marshals, and for the cakes!

    The results are up, including the regular mystery man, this time no 68.


It’s nearly CC6 time again!  Here’s the low down from WADAC’s Stephen Lowy:

Happy New Year everyone, Winchester, Southampton and Running Sisters have checked out the course for next Sunday’s CC6 course.  The circuit is muddy in parts but currently free of any obstructions, but nothing too tricky if you have trail shoes.  This year the course has been modified and will include 2 kissing gates at the top of a short (but steep) wooded hill at the Compton Down end of the course.  The race is 5 miles long and mainly on paths, tracks and grass downland.  There is ample parking at the Badger Farm Sainsbury car park, but please park your vehicle at the far end, near the community centre/surgery.  You will find steps from the rear of the car park leading to Whiteshute Ridge (5 minute walk) where the race starts/finish.
