Fourteen Warrington Athletic Club athletes represented Cheshire in the Inter County Cross Country Championships incorporating the Trials for the World Cross Country Championships at Cofton Park Birmingham on Saturday 7th March.
The top performance came in the under 20 race which incorporated the Trial for the Junior World Championships team with under 17 Harriet Knowles-Jones moving up an age group.in the leading group from the start Harriet led for most of the race gradually breaking down the group till only two were left in the closing stages.Harriet continued to lead but was outsprinted by Phoebe Law (Surrey) and finished a couple of seconds behind.Unfortunately Harriet had forgotten to put her timing chip on her ankle and this led to her being disqualified and not being awarded one of the three automatic team places and she has to wait now to find out if she will get a discretionary place in the team.
