Middlesex Cross Country Champs-Juniors report

This year’s county champs was held on a very frosty and rather chilly morning over at Perivale. The course was through a patchwork of fields up and down the other side of Horsenden Hill with some lovely muddy slopes to negotiate.

The juniors had strong teams out and were hoping to retain some of the cups we had just returned from last year.
The U11s were off first, running 1.5k – at the moment there is no team competition but hopefully this will change next year. In the girls U11 race, Asmaa Abdirahman came storming through to become Middlesex champio with Sofia Gilda-Whyte coming in next for HAC in 12th – we had  5 girls this race. In the boys U11 comp 4 boys competed, with Christopher Burton finishing in 11th, Harvey Williams 12th and Callum McDonnell 13th.

In the U13 competition the girls came third winning a Bronze medal -( the first 3 home were Lydia Louw in 5th, Laura Anene 20th and Angel Doyle 26th) . In the boys Abdirahim Hamud came 3rd winning Bronze -the team came 8th overall.

In the U15 competition, the boys did very well, winning Gold with our team of Abdifatah Khalif in 2nd, Hanad Ahmed in 4th and Nathan Hackley in 12th. Our girls team of 3 girls came 9th in their competition .

In the U17 we had fewer athletes but in the men’s competition Alex Hutchinson came 12th and Tariq Arieff 18th . In the U17 women’s race Isabel Stark came 18th.

In the U20 men’s race our team won Gold with Liam Holbrook in 7th, Mayank Mishra in 9th and Tashan Allman in 12th.
Congratulations must go to all those that competed in a tough championship. Report by Diane Gibbons.
