Severn Athletic Club’s Alex Hope was disappointed not to medal in the veterans 55-59 category at the Midland Cross-Country Championships held over a twisty, windy 7.5 mile course at Berry Hill Park, Mansfield. The top four in the age group were together at 5 miles, “I tired and slipped to fourth, 41 seconds off the lead”. Hope placed 126th overall in 48:10. His best was 25th in 1984. 279 ran.
