On Saturday 1st February, seven athletes competed at the Hereford and Worcestershire County Cross-Country Championships, held at Top Barn. The blustery and cold conditions did not stop our athletes and they all produced some excellent performances. In the senior races Immie Gillgrass just missed out on a medal, finishing 4th, and Laurie Higgins stormed home to finish 5th, meaning that both will qualify for the National Championships in Merseyside in March. Evie Hawkesford-Johnson will also be joining them at this prestigious event after finishing 6th in the Inter-Girls’ race, particularly impressive when she can compete in the same age group next year. All our athletes should be very proud of their performances and will have learnt a lot from competing at this stage.
