Midlands Cross Country Relays – Saturday 21st October 2017

Several of our young athletes took part in the Midlands Cross Country Relays held at Wolverhampton on Saturday. The juniors all competed over a 3km loop of the Aldersley leisure village course.

In the U/17 Mens race we did not have a complete team due to injury but Lewis Nagington and Jacob Droogmans both had great runs, with Lewis recording 10:53 and Jacob 10:52. This meant that when they had completed the second leg they were in second position, just six seconds off the lead of Notts AC.


In the U/13 Boys race our team of Charlie Ranford (14:36), Joseph Stevens (13:37) and Jamie Betteley (14:03) all had strong runs to finish as the 7th best team in the Midlands.


In the U/15 Girls race we had two teams with Misha Twardochleb (13:12), Nadine Tomkinson (13:06) and Scarlett Cotton (13:49) all running strongly and  finishing just outside the medals in 4th position. Whilst our second team of Poppy Ranford (16:14), Lily Stevens (16:48) and Zara Hadden (15:58) showed what great depth we have in this age group, finishing in a fine 10th position.


Congratulations to all our juniors who took part, once again another set of fantastic results. Thanks to Jon Ranford, Tim Sharman and Jerome Stevens for the photos.
