Race Report: 21st-22nd February - by Ali

A record 18 members of UBOC made the 800+ mile round trip to Edinburgh to take part in the biggest event of the year for the club. After a comfortable night in a cute little hostel in Carlisle we arrived at Devilla Forest early Saturday morning ready for the Indivdual Event. This saw some great results across the board on what was a relatively flat course with a lot of fast paced technical controls at the end to keep things interesting. 

A great run by Matt Whipple on the Men’s A course saw him come 21st. Despite still being relatively new to the sport Matt Duffin put in a stellar performance to come 5th on the Men’s B course ahead of Robbie Herring in 7th. In the Women’s A ex-captain Abi Kerr led Bristol home in a fantastic 19th place with Charlotte Bermingham putting all her training into practice to come 34th. Sophie Evans showed some veterans of the sport how it is done and came in 41st. Ingy Berg looked set for a solid 3rd place on the Women’s B course but unfortunately miss punched.

After a tough race it was time to head into Edinburgh to briefly recover before heading out for the social in the Student’s Union. The club looked splendid in our red tights as we dressed as the Incredibles and there were compliments a plenty from the locals. A fun night was had by all but Duncan’s assurance that there would be a Ceilidh was unfortunately never fulfilled much to my disappointment.

On Sunday morning we wearily set out to Barr Wood for the relays and we quickly realised it was going to be a long day when the snow started to fall as we pulled into the car park. In brutal conditions 3 mens, 2 womens teams and an ad-hoc team headed out to compete. The Men’s A Team came in a respectable 9th position and injury and a miss punch unfortunately hampered the B and C team. The Women’s A team ran well to come 8th. The Women’s B team and the Ad-Hoc team unfortunately succumbed to the conditions.

These results all combined to mean the club came 6th overall out of the 25 Universities that competed. This is a great achievement and I’d like to thank everyone who came for putting in so much effort and making it such a fun weekend. A special thanks to Matt and Charlotte for helping to organise the trip and to Robbie and Tom for helping with the driving. Results. Photos
