After an 18 month hiatus the Cross-country Club’s first outing of the 2021/22 season was at the Longworth 10km. It was fantastic to see some familiar faces, including a number of OAs at an event that has acted as an early season benchmark for a number of years. Conditions on the morning were perfect with hard ground underfoot and little breeze in the air.
Coming off a successful track season Rowan Miell-Ingram set the pace at the front of the race which could not be matched. He crossed the line in a time of 33:22, breaking the course record of 34.33 that has stood for 20 years, as well as the junior record of 36.44 which was set by OA Jonty De La Harpe in 2015.
Quinn Miell-Ingram (5th form) ran superbly well to finish in 2nd place in a time of 35:27 with Will D’Arcy finishing 3rd in a time of 36:00, rounding out an all Abingdon podium.
