Pete Riley and Leo Cole headed to the “home of cross country”, Parliament Hill, for the English National Cross Country Championship on 26 February 2022.

Pete finished in 1:00:44 and Leo in 01:02:59 on what, I am informed, was a mild, sunny day  but a very muddy course!

What could be a better way to run 20 miles than five, 4 mile, laps of an airfield?!
