v5 n 21 British XC championships from a head cam

Many of us have heard about , seen photos, or even film of the British Cross Country Championships, but few have had the honor of running in them.   This film taken with a Go Pro camera on someone's head is about as close as you can get to the real thing.  Taken during last months 2015 nationals.  It covers the full race for 46 minutes.  The runner wearing the cam finished  279 out of over 2000 runners.  Watch this from your treadmill or standing in a bathtub of wet sticky mud and get the full effect.  Even drone photography cannot match this.  As our British friends might muse,  " Absolutely bloody brilliant!"
