Five of our juniors represented Yorkshire in this prestigious event. It was held on 9th March, once again at Prestwold Hall, Loughborough, where the wind made conditions extremely difficult for the athletes.
In the U13 Girls’ race, Martha Jackson, in her first year in the age-group, came 27th,
closely followed by Rebecca Flaherty in 37th, both were counters for the Yorkshire team that finished 4th.
Alex Flaherty was 72nd in the U15 Boys’ race, while Reuben Mantle, who always seems to save his best for this event, came 57th in the U20 Men.
Pride of place must go to Emily Field, who came 17th in the U17 Women’s race, which not only made her third counter for the winning Yorkshire team, but also secured her third place overall in the U17 Women’s British Cross Challenge series, a splendid achievement.
Congratulations to them all!
