Update: on Tuesday Ronnie Sparke was selected to represent GB U20s (as he was in 2009) at the World CC Championships in Poland on 28th March.
Seven of our young athletes were selected to run for Essex at Saturday’s Inter County Championships, held this year at Cofton Park in Birmingham. Generally considered to be the premier competition on the cross country season, the standard of the racing lived up to expectations with some large fields and fast times over a surface that was suited to aggressive front running. And 6 Woodford athletes represented their counties in the senior men's race, while Jess Sparke was our sole representative in the women's race.
The day’s best YA result from a Woodford perspective was Ronnie Sparke’s 5th place in the U20 Men’s race.
