ATW Metropolitan Cross Country League

Match 1 at Claybury, Saturday 11th October 2014


Herts Phoenix athletes made a good start to the new cross country season in their first Metropolitan League race held in very warm and sunny conditions at Claybury Park last Saturday. Two of the club’s  younger athletes took part in the first of the under 11s development races which have been introduced this year to give cross country experience to this age group of  youngsters in preparation to the County Championships which will be held early in the New Year. Joe Smith, Nathanael Zapico and Brett Rushman ran very well to win the under 13 boys’ team race backed up by Bryce Breen and Lucas Blackwell. George Cook finished third in the leading group of three runners that had broken away from the rest of the field followed by Jacob Fenwick who was 19th overall and fourth under 15 boy in the combined under17 men’s and under 15 boys’ race and Hannah Booth was the first Club finisher in the girls’ race in 11th place. The senior women’s team won their Division 3 race with under 20 athletes Florence Stansall-Seiler, Alicia Found, Mary Gough and Lizzie Parry scoring. John Eves finished strongly after a fine run to finish in 13th place out of the 417 finishers in the senior men’s race.
