National Champions
Last edited: Tuesday November 7th 2017
Congratulations must go to our junior women's cross country team after their fantastic success in winning the National cross country relays at Berry hill park Mansfield at the weekend.
After winning the event as an under 17 team the girls were determined to gain another success.
Leading off the team was Katie Lowery who kept with the lead group for most of the 2.5 k course and managed to hand over the team in fifth place with a great run which also achieved her a top ten individual time on the day.
Next up was Lauren Ferris who kept the team in fifth despite nursing a injury for the last few weeks ran a great leg to hand over to Harriet Knowles Jones who had to try and make up a 40 second gap to the leading team Blackheath and Bromley.
Going in to the wooded section Harriet had managed to get the team into second place and with the gap still 26 seconds it looked an impossible task, but on emerging from the woods the gap was down to 11 seconds.
A massive effort from on the last 1k of the course Harriet managed to go past the leader and gain a brilliant and memorable success. Harriet's individual time was also the fastest of the race.
Lauren and Harriet have been at the club since they were nine years old and Katie since she was 14, and have all developed into truly inspirational athletes for the younger members to try and emulate.
Well done girls.
