National XC Recap
We took 20 athletes to Kingston for the national cross country championships and had great experience.
Starting at the top, Ehab El Sandali defended his title in the Junior boys race, completely controlling the race until making a dramatic breakaway move with 1500m to go.
Congratulations to our National Champion!
At the other end of the spectrum, we tried something new and took some of youngest athletes for their first taste of national competition , and they all performed well, which bodes well for our future.Great runs by Robyn, Laura and Daniel in particular.
In the Youth championships, Maddy and Peter led the way for us, but our teams finished a little behind our expectations. This was not because they ran poorly, but more because the competition was so intense.
But our red hoodies were very noticeable everywhere, as the first year of our new club comes to a very successful conclusion.
