A team of John Stow’s intrepid young athletes travelled on Sunday to Cardiff to take up the British Athletics Cross Challenge. Under the watchful eye of Coach Steve Cody the team assembled in Blackweir Fields, eautiful parkland in the city centre along side the river Taff. Ready for a memorable day’s racing.
The course, which was in a much less boggy condition than last year, was nonetheless exciting, full of fast flats, steep banks and twists and turns, but soft underfoot compared to the frozen fields of Essex the day before. To quote young Nathan Wright after his inspection he declared it ‘’a perfect cross country course”.
