North Wales Cross Country Report
This past weekend 5th March, saw the last cross country league meeting for both the juniors and seniors. This league meeting also incorporated the North Wales Cross Country Championship.
The races took part in some of the best weather in what has been a season filled with bad weather which led to some cancellations and made some race conditions very hard going. In total we had 18 athletes representing the club in the various races which was held in Wrexham.
In the first race we had the U15 boys and throughout the season they performed consistently and all finishing close together and with the consistent performances the U15 boys managed to win the North Wales U15 League. A big well done to Morgan, Harvey, Hayden and Iestyn. In the individual postioning they all placed in the top 11 with Morgan being the highest placed in 5th.
In the U15 girls we had Lucy who has only just started doing the cross country this season after a few years of doing sprint events. In her first full season of cross country she managed to get 7th in the overall individual table and on the day she managed a very credible 10th place.
In the U13 boys and U13 girls we had 2 athletes in each event. In the boys we had Alfie and Ewan. Alfie won the race comfortably by 16 seconds and Ewan was 5th. With Alfie winning the race in the 3 events he took part in he won 2 races and came 2nd in the other race this makes Alfie 1st in the individual placings and the North Wales Champion. Well done Alfie for another championship.
In the girls race we had Rosie and Evie taking part and they both came 7th and 17th respectively. This meant Rosie just missed out on the top 3 for the individual table.
In the last junior race was the U11 boy's. We had Finley, Iwan, Caleb and Tyler representing the club and each athlete had tremendous races on saturday in what was a tight race for positions 3rd downwards. In the individual table, Finley was the best placed and just missed out on the top 3, finishing 4th with Caleb in 8th, Iwan in 10th and Tyler in 11th.
Well done to all the Junior Athletes that took part.
In the Senior races which followed on from the Junior Athletes we had 5 athletes representing the club. The best placed male athlete was Jared who finished in 59th overall and 15th in his age group. We had Russ who finished 89th overall and 9th in his age group and then we had Ian who finished 97th overall and 11th in his age group.
In the North Wales Cross Country Championship, Russ came 3rd in his age group just pipping Ian into 4th and Jared managed a very respectable 8th in his age group.
On the female side we had Anne and Maureen representing the club. Anne came 41st overall and 3rd in her age group and Maureen came 78th overall and 1st in her age group which is the over 80's.
In the North Wales Cross Country Championship, Maureen became the North Wales Champion and Anne came 3rd in their respective age groups.
We would like to say a big well done to the North Wales Cross Country League Organisers who have managed to put on a full season in what has been a difficult winter season.
