BUCS 2018

posted 8 Feb 2018, 09:13 by Cross Country Club - Saints Sport   [ updated 9 May 2018, 07:13 ]

This year hosted by Brunel University in London, the British Universities and Colleges Sport Cross Country Championships drew in a massive total of 1655 runners down. After a long 9.5 hour drive on the Friday, we settled in to our accommodation, and mentally prepared for the day ahead. The course was fairly flat, with a little hill, and a great river crossing (some shoes were lost). A distance of 9.92km for the men's A, 8.4km men's B, and 6.88 women's gave a great variety, with all races (thankfully) only being 2 laps of an adjusted course. Luckily, there was only a very light drizzle, and barely any wind, so aside from the cold temperature, we had ideal conditions.

Following the post-race near hypothermia, and extensive showering, we headed off to Brunel student's union for a fantastic afterparty, all dressed in our new social t-shirts for BUCS this year. £5 for 3 VKs, an incredible silent disco, and a rodeo made for a smashing end to an eventful day. Overall, an incredible bonding weekend, full of XC love, support, and a great race! Well done to everyone who went!
