2016-17 Chiltern XC Match 2

Match 2 of the 2016-17 Chiltern XC League took place at Milton Keynes on 12th November 2016. The event also included the first race of the 2016-17 British Athletics Cross Challenge and a competition between the RAF and Oxford University. I took photos of four races: U17/U20 Women, Senior/Vet Women, U17 Men (with U20 Cross Challenge) and U20/Senior/Vet Men.
The photos were taken at two places, "Point X" and "Point Y". Point X is roughly halfway between C and D and Point Y is roughly halfway between D and F where C, D and F are on these maps.
These photos are also on Facebook in albums having names beginning with 2016-17ChXC2.

Photos of the U17/U20 Women race:
The U17/U20 Women race took place at 1300. It consisted of two laps: a small lap (ABC) followed by a large lap (ABCDEDFC). I didn't take any photos on the first lap. On lap 2, I took photos at points X and Y. However, at point X I only got the runners at the front. And at point Y from 13:20 onwards there were Senior/Veteran Women as well. Photos of the Sen/Vet Women race:
The Senior/Vet Women race took place at 1315. It consisted of two laps: a medium lap (ABCDFC) followed by a large lap (ABCDEDFC). On lap 1, I took photos at point Y. However, at this point the runners were mixed up with U17/U20 Women doing their second lap. On lap 2, I took photos at point X. Photos of the U17 Men and the U20 Cross Challenge Men race:
The race for the U17 Men of the Chiltern League and the U20 Men of the Cross Challenge took place at 1340. It consisted of two laps: a medium lap (ABCDFC) followed by a large lap (ABCDEDFC). I took photos at point X on both laps 1 and 2. Photos of the U20/Senior/Vet Men race:
The race for U20/Senior/Vet Men took place at 1400. It consisted of three laps: a medium lap (ABCDFC) followed by two large laps (ABCDEDFC). On lap 1, I took photos at point X. On lap 2, I took photos at both points X and Y. However, on lap 2 at point X I only got the runners at the front. On lap 3, I took photos at point Y. From 14:27 to 14:36 when I was at point Y, there was a mix of runners because slower runners doing lap 2 were lapped by fast runners doing lap 3.
