UK CAU Inter Counties XC

Saturday 17 March 2018

This years event was again held at Loughborough. Day was dry, but ground soaked from thawing snow, with pools of water around course. The event also incorporated the conclusion of the XChallenge xc series of five races, with best three race results counting towards prizes. Majority of runners in races represented their County teams, seeking individual medals, or team medals.

 

Cardiff's runners had some excellent results. James Hunt 6th in senior men, against top class UK senior men opposition.            

Jake Heyward 3rd in U20M was an excellent result, after running 3.43.35 (i) 1500m, showing his racing talent on and off track. Jake also won XChallenge overall U20 title. First in Cardiff last October, fourth on another muddy course at Liverpool last November, to add to his third place at Loughborough.

Abigail Fisher had another excellent result 15th U17W just three days following her win at Brecon. Surely with more rest days, her position in race would have surely led to a higher position in race.
