A clutch of medals for Chelmsford AC athletes at Essex County Cross Country Championships

02 Dec 2018

There were five individual medals, and two sets of team medals from Saturdays Essex County Cross County Championships at Hilly Fields, Colchester.        

After taking the honours at the two league meetings this term our Under 13 Girls found Havering edging them out for the prime position this time. Kiera Atkinson led our squad, and finished in second place – therefore collecting two Silvers from the event.

Having shown his winning ways by way of taking the U13 Eastern Counties title last weekend, Will Steadman gained his second title in a week – literally by inches this time, from his nearest rival.  His efforts also helped the U13 Boys team to a medal - having tied for third place, their fifth runner position gave them a Bronze.

Mick Bridgeland, giving away years in the Over 50 classification, beat many of the ‘youngsters’, and his 14th place very deservedly gave him the Over 60’s title. 

Rebecca Luxton - another Veteran in excellent form this season was placed second in the Over 35 Women’s race, with Wendy King collecting the Bronze medal for Over 45’s.
