Young Athletes Northern Road Relay Champs
Our young athletes took part in the Northern Road Relay Championships at Sportcity finishing teams in all six age-groups and medalling in two of them. Pride of place must go to our U13 girl’s team of ISABELLE BURKE, TAYLOR EDWARDS and AKIRA EDSON who were silver medallists in a race contested by 55 teams.
In the U13 boy’s race, our team of HARRY EDMUNDSON, JACK SPARK and ARCHIE McCARRON finished in 3rd place. We also finished first B team due to fine runs from CHARLIE TITTENSOR, WILL PARKER and TORIN LYNDSEY.
In the U15 age group, our girls finished 14th whilst our boys were 23rd. Well done to ANOUSKA BROOKS, LUCY ARMITAGE, LOURA HOLE, GEORGE SAFRANAUSKAS, ALEX JAMES and MATTHEW THOMAS.
We are the reigning U17 Northern Women’s Cross-Country Champions but, as all our runners from last year have moved up an age-group, we’re in the early stages of building a new team which, at Sportcity, finished 7th but, which I’m confident will be challenging for medals in the New Year. Well done to BETH THORNTON, STEFFI MOSS (making her club debut) and LULU GRIFFITHS. Our U17 men’s team of KIAN LINDSEY, SAM HEYWORTH and JOHN GILBERT finished 22nd to ensure we finished a team in every age-group.
