My legs didn’t enjoy the 12 km they had to traverse at the Compass Sport Cup Final, and my brain didn’t enjoy some of it either, though the Brown course did make pretty good use of an area that turned out to be as grotty as predicted. The Leicestershire club ran the show well though, and the sun shone for us too.

Early on in the proceedings, Harlequins were constantly in the medal places, but some of the other teams saved their best till last and we eventually ended up fifth. A very good result for our first time in the Final. Congratulations to team captain John Embrey and to the 70 club members who took part.
