Race 4: West Midland Young Athletes XC League, Northampton, 14th Jan 2018.

Third league race of wmyaccl.com (race 3 cancelled), 14. January  2018: Abington Park, Northampton.
Having passed the mid-point of the West Midland Young Athletes Cross-Country League 2017-2018 meetings with a cancelled meeting at Perry Park in December, Sparkhill’s junior harriers competed on Sunday around the undulating fields and tree-lined tracks of Abington Park; Sparkhill’s senior men last competed here during the 2011-2012 season when in Division II.

Well done to those athletes who raced on Sunday - with improvements in position across the board – and commiserations to Ben Frost who was unable to complete his race.

Thanks to Rob Mills and Dave Reed for continually supporting the young athletes at each meeting.

The fourth and final race meeting will take place on Sunday, 11. February at Aldersley Stadium, Wolverhampton and, if everyone were to run who’d taken part this season, we’d have ten competitors.
