Brooks Midlands XC Championships

  RESULTS of the 2016 XC Championships


All Cross Country runners at Saturday’s Midland Championships I am sure would like to join me in expressing our most sincere thanks to the miracle workers who in less than a week ensured this  year’s Championships went ahead. It was only last Monday that the Office heard the news that Stafford Common was awash with water & therefore not in a fit state to hold the Championships. Quick action behind the scenes by various unsung heroes tried various places to try to ensure the Championships went ahead. Eventually, it was decided that the course at Prestwold Hall would be the answer to everyone’s prayers. Our grateful thanks goes to John Skevington of Leicestershire Running & Athletics Network who was the man that came up trumps! No one on Saturday would have known that the course was devised only this last week. One felt for the Staffordshire organisers – Pete Burns & Graham Allen who had done all the donkey work for Stafford Common. They were however able to transfer the tents firm & the First Aiders to the new venue which was pleasing, but another firm had to be found for the toilets (a super supply including disabled which was greatly appreciated by all at the event!). Obviously, John needed to find helpers to mark the course & to marshal it.

The Office in the meantime were having to alter the plans for the programme & then they had further problems with the Email System going down! Communication was a high priority to athletes/parents/officials/coaches but by sheer hard work this was all achieved by the end of the week.

Well Done! Is totally inadequate for this major miracle. All concerned deserve a medal – it was a truly amazing feat!!

Once again we have a bereavement in our throwing family.

Peter Weir, Brother of fellow throwers Robert and Ray, has passed away at the too early age of 52.

Peter competed for Birchfield Harriers, reaching 16.53m in the Shot and 62.60m in the Hammer in the mid 1980’s.

A quiet thoughtful man, whose deeds spoke for him.
