The first race of the championships was the u13 girls and it was Poppy Adkin who set the standard for the club as she set off with a look of determination on her face. She stayed strong throughout, though it was a tough cross-country course with plenty of mud in places and she was the star of the show for us finishing a fantastic 7th place in a high quality race with a time of 13.35. Poppy was backed up with a solid performance from Eve Rowley in 33rd place in a time of 14.44.

 

It was then the turn of the u13 boys and the team had a great race with Robert Wardlaw in 31st, Ryan Butler in 51st and Joss Pegg in 100th place.
