Birtley at British Cross Challenge in Liverpool

This weekend, seven Birtley AC athletes are off to Liverpool to take part in the second match of the British Cross Challenge. This prestigious event includes the European Cross Country Championship Trials, meaning that these athletes may also be selected for the European team – no pressure there then!

Birtley, and Lydia Turner in particular, have recently been brought to the country’s attention by their cross-country successes both in the Cross Challenge and in last month’s Relay Championships. Adrian Chrismas, a noted TV online and arena commentator tweeted the following message:



The seven athletes who will be competing for Birtley and hoping for success this weekend are Robyn and Kate Waugh, Lydia Turner, Sophie Burnett, Danielle Elliott, Philippa Chambers and Tom Goulding – we wish them the best of luck! Keep an eye on our website – results will be posted as soon as they’re available. The last Cross Challenge report can be viewed here.
