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”.
Several Woodford runners braved the elements to compete for West Essex in the Essex Schools Cross Country Champs at the appropriately named Hillyfields on Saturday.
Woodford had two runners in the first Junior Girls race. Wren Jackson, (photo above) was tripped and fell at the start and showed great courage and determination to pick herself up, dust herself down and work her way through the pack to finish a very creditable 28th, disappointed, however she still had a smile on her face at the end. Georgina Hanford was our second runner home, running very well for 37th in the 3.3km course.
