National XC Relays Mansfield 3rd November 2012

Eight Birtley AC athletes travelled to Mansfield for the National XC Relays. Of the eight, five of them still wanted to travel and compete although they knew they would not be part of a full team, it goes to show that they want to gain experience, have competition from other regions and most important still enjoy the sport.

Tom Goulding and Chris Peverley raced the Under 17 men event, Adrian Bailes the Under 20 men with Danielle Coulson and Sophie Burnett in the Under 15 Girls. All giving good solid performances and showing that they can hold their own in National competitions.

The only full team to compete for the Club were the Under 17 Women team of Sophie Forster, Anna Fawcett and Lydia Turner and they finished a very commendable 5th team, only 15 seconds away from a medal position (which after 28min 37sec of racing is very close).

Well done everyone and let’s keep moving forward. Video of the event can be seen here
