Thank you from the Baker family

The Baker family would like to express their gratitude for the support given by club members to the British Heart Foundation in the wake of John's death in August.

The BHF received a total of £779 from John's friends and the family's supporters, a sum which includes donations by numerous club members.

The family would like to say a big "Thank You" to all.

UK Cross Challenge, Sefton Park, Liverpool

14 young athletes travelled to Liverpool to taste top opposition on a fast course with cloudy skies but little wind throughout the morning. It was probably our best set of results as we had three athletes in the top 10 plus another four inside the top 35. Starting fields were around 140 in each race.

Under 11 Girls

Isabelle Kyson started out in the top ten in her 2k race. As the race progressed the lead was changing hands quite a bit with our athlete always in the top four. With 200 metres to run, Isabelle made her charge and overtook the girl in second place and was closing down the leader to lose out in a brilliant 2nd place, just three seconds behind the winner.

Autumn Le Chavelier, the Harlow Primary Year 3 Schools XC champion, had a fine race too. Not going out too fast, she improved her position throughout the closing stages for an excellent 26th from 160 starters, which was a fine performance from probably the youngest competitor in the field, having turned 9 just a month ago.
