Winter 2014 Berkshire Successes


This winter’s activity saw two Berkshire qualified athletes become national champions. 

In the English National Cross Country Championships, Jonathan Davies of Reading AC triumphed in the 10km under 20 race, winning by 4 seconds. Meanwhile, Elliott Thorne of Slough Junior AC set a big PB in the under 15 long jump to win the England Athletics indoor title. 

Congratulations to both athletes on their magnificent achievements. We wish them and all local athletes a very successful and rewarding summer season.
