Sat 14 March...ESAA Cross Country Championship, Blackburn. Well done all Helm runners who represented Cumbria in this tough competition. It has taken 3 previous rounds of competition, starting at District level, progressing through running against others from Cumbria into the North West regional round, for runners to make it to the final. There were some very creditable performances by Helm Hill members, competing amongst huge fields of runners (over 300 in each age/gender category).
Sat 7 March...Intercounties Cross Country, Birmingham (also the BA Cross Challenge). Well done to all Helm runners who took part in the Cumbrian teams...Matthew Senior 122nd, Chris Richards 136th in MU17s, Imogen Burrow 75th, Mia Senior 248th in FU15s. This event is a very high standard, with fast racing in muddy conditions and up to 300 runners from all over the country in each gender category, all chosen to compete because they are the best in their Counties.
