Midland XC Championships, Wollaton Park, Nottingham, Sat 27th January 2018.

ImageDespite the late notice for entries we still had 7 men and 4 ladies in the senior races. Thanks to the efforts of Nick Stringer, junior XC team manager, we even had a junior running for the first time in a number of years. These were possibly the muddiest conditions we have experienced this season with foot deep sections to test the toughest resolve.

Nick says, "According to the Midland Counties Athletic Association website (midlandathletics.org.uk), Alice's appearance seems to be the first for Sparkhill Harriers in the U15 Girls' race in over ten years. Furthermore, she did herself proud with a determined attitude to her running on a demanding course."
