Sunday, 05 December 2010

Well done to all the Harriers who braved the snow to run in the 3rd round of the Manchester Cross Country League at Boggart Hole Clough on Saturday.

There was a good covering of snow, mixed with ice, mud and grass at the venue which made for challenging conditions, and there were some excellent performances once the snow ball fights had faded away!

Full results are now available here  on the race-results website.

Highlights of the day included Georgia Aston-Massey's battling second place, fighting off two competitors on the line for second place in the U13 girls race.  Shortly behind her came Christopher Larkin winning the U11 boys race comfortably, but all athletes deserve a mention!

Well done to Natasha, Isla, Alex, Charlotte, Christopher, Georgia, Jess, Annabel, Kelsey, Emily, Jenny, Bradley & Richard for braving Arctic conditions and representing the club!
