Great Edinburgh International Cross Country I 7th January
Last edited: Monday January 9th 2017

Warrington AC's Harriet Knowles Jones ran for Great Britain in the Great Edinburgh International Cross Country on Saturday 7th January.

Harriet (coached by Paul Roden) sealed a marvellous victory in the junior women's race to continue her excellent run of form which saw her win bronze at the European Cross Country Championships last month.

She made her move on the penultimate lap of the race, opening up a 20m gap as they came around Haggis Knowe, and that lead kept opening up over the last long lap to seal victory and go one better than her second place finish in Holyrood in 2016.

Knowles-Jones said afterwards: " I had a race plan, and I like it when a race plan comes off. The first lap was very calm, the second was a bit faster, but when we got to the hills I felt like the Americans dropped off us a tiny bit, and I just took that and went with it."

Harriet helped the junior women's team to victory over Europe and USA.
