Start Fitness Met League race 2: Young Athletes

A total of 43 young athletes descended upon Stanborough Park Welwyn Garden where overnight rain had left the course a little bit soggy underfoot. This was a new course with stretches of camber on it plus a steep climb on each lap, together with some woodland.

Woodford enjoyed an excellent day with four team wins, three individual wins and taking the lead in the overall Howard Williams Junior Trophy event, to boot.Eden McNicholas 5

Start Fitness Met League race 2: Seniors

After a balmy start to the 2017/18 season last month, fixture 2, at new venue Welwyn Garden City’s Stanborough Park, looked and felt a lot more like a winter fixture, even if it didn’t feel particularly cold. With course information limited to noting that It "began and ended on grass", it was anybody’s guess what this Stevenage replacement might be. In truth it was not very different; grass, yes, more undulated and cambered with a good woodland section and a steep sharp rounded hill. Despite some water logging in the park, the course itself was surprisingly firm.
