Match 2 of the 2017-18 Chiltern XC League took place at Milton Keynes on 11th November 2017. The event also included the second race of the 2017-18 British Athletics Cross Challenge and a competition between Oxford University and the RAF.
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 which I've called "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 points on these maps.
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 lap 1. 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.
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.
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 lap 1 and at points X and Y on lap 2. However, at points X and Y on lap 2, I only got the runners at the front.
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 14:26 to 14:41 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.
