Venue: Victoria Park
Team WGEL U9s and U11s were out racing this weekend in the Chingford league. A one mile, single lap course was set around the main path of the famous “Vicky Park”. This made a pleasant change from the grass, mud and puddles of recent weeks.
There was a good field of 48 junior athletes competing in the race, the final in the series of the individual competition, with a mix of newcomers and race-hardened athletes looking to add to their final score. The scoring system rewards consistency and performance with a total score for individuals made up from their best five results (from maximum of six races) over the series.
