Jackie Robson travelled to Wolverhampton for the Midlands Master cross country competition.

The course was a mixture of mud, frozen ground on water ditches, some long drags, a few little sharp hills and some nice runnable stretches.

Robson finished 24th in 27:38, fourth in the over 45 vets category and is hoping for a good result in this weekend’s Midlands Counties cross country race at Wollaton Park.
