Euro success at Liverpool Cross Challenge for Birtley – UPDATED!

What an amazing day it’s been at the Cross Challenge event at Liverpool today.

In the u15’s race, Kate Waugh romped in with a hard fought 5th place, with the same finish time as the 4th placed athlete and only 4 seconds behind the 3rd – well done Kate!

In the combined u17’s/u20’s race, Lydia Turner came in third place overall, and first place for the u17’s, with a guaranteed offer of a place on the Euro squad in two weeks time – what a great result! Her team-mates also did really well – Philippa finishing in 26th place, Sophie Burnett in 29th and Robyn Waugh in 35th. Tom Goulding, as the only male Birtley athlete on this occasion, also put in a sterling performance, finishing in 32nd place in what must have been a very strong field.

Well done to all of them – we look forward to their next outing when they will no doubt give more great performances! All pictures of the event can be viewed here, with a selection shown below.
