Our squad of young athletes took on one of the most prestigious races on the cross country calendar this weekend in damp, muddy conditions at Sefton Park, Liverpool. At a senior level this race incorporates team GB European Cross Country trials with the elite runners all battling for a place at the European Cross Country champs in Lisbon on 8th December 2019.
The course is designed to mirror the sort of challenges the elite athletes will face in Lisbon. However, this posed no fears for our young athletes with the whole squad putting their hard work from training and experience from racing in the Met League to full use!
