Jonathan Davies became the first ever Berkshire athlete to win consecutive titles at the UK Inter Counties Cross Country Championships, held in Cofton Park, Birmingham. Jonathan followed up last season’s success in the under 17’s race with a very well judged win in his first attempt in the under 20 Men’s.
Matthew Rawlings continued his fine season to finish runner up in the under 13 Boys, and with some excellent packing from Ben Hooper in 9th place, James Daly 26th and Sammy Hart 29th, the boys team also took the runner up spot.
The under 15 Girls team were crowned Champions, again this was down to some fantastic team work that saw twin sisters Hope and Grace Goddard cross the line together in 6th & 7th place’s, while Felicity Johnson and Siannah Rayment both ran well in 20th and 21st places respectively.
The Senior Men also showed how some good teamwork can pay off as they were placed 2nd behind Lancashire in the nine Men team positions.
It was also very rewarding to see Berkshire finish a team in all of the ten races, for which I would like to thank each and every one of you who took part. Thanks also go to the coaches and parents that helped out with the teams and supported the athletes.
