The honours were shared in the 2023 University Cross-Country Races, held in bitterly cold and damp conditions on Saturday 2nd December.
In the 47th Ladies’ Race, Oxford took full advantage of the Light Blues having lost two of their top runners to record a comfortable 32 points to 46 victory. Phoebe Barker (Robinson, Cambridge) took the individual honours in her final appearance in a fine time of 23:12, winning by over a minute from Elizabeth Apsley (St. Hilda’s, Oxford). Naomi Kingston (Queen’s, Oxford) completed the top three places with two further Dark Blues finishing before the next Cambridge runner. Oxford now lead the series by 27 wins to 20.
