At the North Of England Cross Country Relay Championships in Sheffield last weekend Birtley’s under 17 team proved unbeatable with the trio coming away with gold medals. Lydia Turner, Sophie Forster and Anna Fawcett were in tremendous form finishing 2nd, 1st and 1st in their respective legs. Lydia, this years Junior North Run winner, provided the fastest leg of the day (8.14) Anna the 2nd fastest (8.28) and Sophie, returning from injury, 5th fastest (8.38). Well done girls – a brilliant effort. Well done also to Sophie Burnett and Danielle Coulson who travelled all the way to Sheffield with an incomplete team to run their respective legs. Sophie finished 9th (8.25) and Danielle 13th (9.15).
