LRAA County X/C Championship 2018

The Leicestershire and Rutland County Cross Country Championship took place on January 5th at Rotherby Lodge Farm in Melton.


Elsie Robinson won the U15g race with a commanding run and leading from gun to tape. This is an astonishing feat considering Elsie has only just moved into this age group.


Poppy Adkin had a superb run in the U13g race with a 2nd place finish after a terrific battle with Sophie Dunbobbin of Wreake & Soar Valley AC. She was supported with excellent runs by Eve Rowley (6) and Matilda McGrath (8) for the girls to claim the team silver.


Like Elsie, Lachlan Finch has just moved into the U15 age group but this didn’t stop him from taking a fine 5th place in his race.
