U11 Cross Country Meet at Abberley Hall (A)

Result: Oliver Almond 6th, James Longworth 7th, Indira Singh 12th, from a field of over 100 runners

This was our second adventure into this superb cross country venue with everything a trail runner could wish for. From varying gradients, heavy inclines around a beautiful church, and pathways that had roots, cobbles, scree, mud to add to the challenge. At one point, runners had to choose between a narrow bridge or boggy surroundings, only to find they may lose their shoe if they took the wrong option (ask Oliver Almond!). Both the boys and girls ran together and it’s a quite a spectacle to see over 100 runners start. Which you will see if you attend The Scotsman run next Friday at Warley Woods! It was fantastic to see two top 10 finishes for our boys, and Indira Singh close in 12th for the girls.
