Regular Tri247 readers will know that we do like to keep an eye on non-multisport results through the triathlon off-season, with many familiar names racing year round in different formats and disciplines.

For the most part, this is mostly the traditional Cross Country season, though we did spot a very fast road race on Thursday night, where Jonathan Brownlee came very close to breaking 14 minutes for 5km in Ireland.

This past Saturday however it was back to one of the traditional and iconic sights of English winter running - the English National Cross Country Championships at Paliament Hill Fields. While the Championships do rotate around the regions, for many, Parliament Hill is the spiritual home of this most traditional of events. In keeping with tradition, the mud was also plentiful on Saturday too!

We spotted some great performances from several familiar triathlon and duathlon names, which certainly shows that they are in great form ahead of their primary multisports season. A superb 11th for British Elite Duathlon Champion and ETU European medal winner Phil Wylie in the senior men's race, while Alex Yee took a bronze in the Under-17 Men's race.
