Junior Girls do Chelmsford AC proud at English National Cross Country Championships

03 Nov 2019

Well done to the 3 Chelmsford teams that made the trip to Mansfield to compete in the National Cross Country Relay Championships.

In everyone’s first ever National Champs event the u13 girls A Team finished in a fantastic 12th place overall and showing an awesome strength of depth our B Team was 34th overall! Not many clubs are capable of fielding 2 teams in one age group that can finish this high up against the whole country. The u15 girls team finished 20th overall in very tough conditions which was great to see.

These athletes are the future of our club and they were all absolutely superb today. Great effort.

U13 Girls A: Kayleigh Atkinson, Amelia King, Gaby Bilbie

U13 Girls B: Sienna Shipton, Holly Appleton, Mia Bowring

U15 Girls: Kiera-Jayne Atkinson, Larna Morgan, Holly Watson
