Last edited: Monday February 5th 2018

The British Universities Cross Country Championships were held on Saturday 3rd February at Hillingdon House Farm Sports Ground over an extremely muddy course including a crossing through the River Pinn.

In the women's race over two laps European under 20 Cross Country Champion Harriet Knowles-Jones was always in the leading group and as the race was longer than she normally runs she held back till crossing the river for the second time when she made her bid to win the race and was successful in holding on to take her first title in a senior race with a time of 22 minutes 39.6 seconds leading her Manchester University team to 8th place.

Running for Edinburgh University was Katie Lowery who ran well to finish in 47th place in 25 minutes 11.4 seconds to be a non counting 5th finisher for her team which lost out on the Bronze Medals as their 3rd counting runner finished behind the 3rd Birmingham counter with both teams on 44 points.
