Race 2: West Midland Young Athletes XC League 2017-2018, 19. Nov 2017: Warley Woods.

The second meeting of the 2017-18 junior, cross-country league took place on Sunday, on a challenging cross-country course – apparently longer than Hatton - which undulated around Warley Woods.

Well done to those athletes who competed and especially to Josh and Lola, who were running their first league race for Sparkhill Harriers and both finished strongly. Izabella’s position was much improved as she made her way through the field during the race and Prav consolidated his result from his first race. Both Zac and Dylan ran the extra mile (literally) in their first league race in the U17s, while illness and injury respectively prevented two other juniors from running on the day.

 27 Izabella Thompson 
 20.43 U17 Women 
 38 Zac Minchin 20.44 U17 Men
 52 Dylan Sudworth 22.02  
 85 Praveer Phull
