The first Sunday of January saw Members of Boston Triathlon Club put the excess of Christmas behind them as they travelled to Biscathorpe near Louth to take part in the annual Lincolnshire Cross Country Championships.

With a course that was hilly, muddy and requiring the fording of the River Bain more than once per lap, the event hosted by Lincolnshire Athletic Association was going to be a tough start to the New Year.

Ella Firth put in a superb effort given that she lost a running shoe and spent 2 minutes stuck in the unforgiving mud. While Frankie Owen put in another terrific effort as she continues to improve in her first year of cross country.
Unfortunately Ben Marsters decided to retire while running in a strong forth place rather than aggravate a painful Achilles.
