Berks, Bucks and Oxon Cross Country Champs 2017

Well done to everyone that competed at the BBO Cross Country Champs on Sunday 19th. The course was deceptively hard, with the steep hills hidden from view at the start. The ground was both firm in parts and muddy in others, making the hills particularly tricky.

Snr W BBOStars of the day were the senior women’s team, who gained an individual medal with Lucy Rogers coming 2nd senior woman and a team bronze, with teammates Laura Street and Bethany Brown.

The men were just out of the medals coming 4th, with Joe Branch placing 5th senior man.

For the juniors, the U17 boy’s team had the best result of the day coming in just short of a medal position in 4th, with Finn Bell coming 6th. The U17 girls team was hit by some last minute hiccups but performed really well considering, coming in 5th.  U17s BBOWe struggled for numbers in the other age groups, but those who raced ran well. The competition as a whole was dominated by the big 3 club’s; Windsor, Reading and Bracknell. The club is growing, but we need more athletes across these age groups if we are to compete against the bigger clubs.
