Start Fitness Metropolitan League

Match 4 - Wormwood Scrubs - Saturday 13th January 2018

A good number of Herts Phoenix athletes competed in the fourth Metropolitan Cross Country League match over the flat but muddy courses at Wormwood Scrubs last Saturday. There was an exciting under 15 girls' and under 17 women's race with Freya Stapleton just pipping her teammate Lottie Rowedder for second place. John Eves had another excellent race to finish in fifth place in the senior men's event with Afe Rossom finishing in 26th place overall and 3rd under 20 out of the record field of 544 finishers, the Senior Men's Team is currently leading Division Three after 4 matches. There was a large turnout of under 13 boys who packed very well to hold on to their overall 2nd place in the team competition. Several of the Club's athletes will be travelling to Stanmer Park, Brighton on 27th January to compete in the South of England Championships and many of the younger athletes are now preparing to represent their schools in the Herts Schools Cross Country Championships at St Albans on Saturday 3rd February.
