Start Fitness Metropolitan Cross Country League

Match 5 on Saturday 11th February 2017

It was bitterly cold at Alexandra Palace last Saturday where the Herts Phoenix endurance athletes met for the final match of their league season. The under 13 boys were again in great form with four athletes finishing in the top nine to again win the team trophy. Ethan Primett, who is only 11 ran a very mature race running side by side with the eventual winner only to be beaten by just 2 seconds but finishing 24 seconds clear of the third finisher, he was very well supported by William Hughes 6th, Alexander Clark making his debut for the Club in 8th place and Ben Crooks who was 9th. Joe Smith had his first race of the winter after a long layoff with injury ran very well to finish in 9th place, 4th under 15, in the combined under 15 boys and under 17 men's race and secure second place for the season in the team competition. John Eves again had an excellent run to finish 3rd overall in the Senior Men's race having had to tackle three laps of the very demanding course, he was well supported by 18 year old Jamie Philpott who ran a superb very well controlled race to lead home the under 20 athletes and finish in 13th place overall out of the 359 finishers. The senior men's team finished in second place in Division 3.
