Holford Eastern Champ; Cox 1st England M60

Congratulations to Angus Holford, who took the Eastern Counties Cross Country title at Colchester on Saturday (21/11/15). On a 12K course, Angus adopted a "slow-burn strategy", allowing a group to get a decent lead early on before reeling them in. By the end of the second lap of three Angus had opened up a lead, and he eventually won by some distance from Havering's Rob Warner, who is an athlete that Angus had never previously beaten and who had finished 4th in the recent Essex CC League race.

Dave Cox England M60

Meanwhile, last week in Dublin, Dave Cox represented England yet again in the Masters International CC. Dave has made a habit of qualifying for the England team through his consistently outstanding performances, and in Dublin he excelled yet again, finishing first English M60, though behind 3 Irish runners in front of him. The race was combined with M50s and M55s.
