Good turn out for the Cross Country Races of the season at Farringdon.

There was a good line up of Birtley athletes who competed at Farringdon. 37 in total completed the course compared with 28 last year which is hopefully the way things are going to go throughout the season. The course is the same for all age groups (1.8mls) except the U11’s who race over 1kM, so it’s a good chance to have a look at the results and see how athletes compare with other age groups and if there has been an improvement from last year. The Club picked up medals throughout the day, Matthew Cleugh 1st U11 Boy and Lewis McConnell 3rd U11 Boy. Lydia Turner was 1st U17 Women with Anna Fawcett 3rd in the same race. In the Under 17 Men’s race there was Chris Peverley 2nd and Tom Goulding 3rd. A special mention to the 2 ladies who raced Bethan Oakes and Val Baxter. The Senior Men A team came in 4th and the Vets A team 5th. Adrian Bailes continues to improve and build on a good summer, finishing 8th fastest leg overall. Looking at last years results with those who competed again this year there were some good improved times throughout and another point is that if Lydia had competed in the Senior Womens race she would have finished 2nd, behind Rosie Smith of Durham who is a GB international. Well done to everyone, let’s keep it going for the future.
