OXFORD City’s veterans were celebrating after collecting two team medals at the South of England Cross Country Championships at Horspath.
Pride of place went to their Vet 60 masters line-up who took the title for the fifth year in a row.
The successful team of Roy Treadwell, who was second in the V65 class, plus Richard Grant and Stewart Thorp, who were sixth and eighth respectively in the V60 race, proved unbeatable.
In addition, City’s Julian Richardson, Tegid Jones and Les Newell all defied the muddy conditions to finish in the top 20 of the V40 race to collect the silver medal.
Richardson also picked up a bronze in the V45 individual event with his time of 33mins 28secs.
