  • Mud Glorious Mud

    The annual mud fest otherwise known as the English National Cross Country Championships took place Saturday at Herrington Country Park near to Sunderland, which to track fans in the know is close to the homes of some UK middle and distance greats of the Golden Era of UK athletics of the 70's/80's.

    Anyway snow in the morning after a record wet 2012 and thousands of runners meant it was always going to be a muddy epic.

    See for yourselves;

      An English friend of mine son got 11th in the under 15's. The video was pretty amazing. Mud and muck and snow. Sunderland is tough this time of year.
