British Athletics Cross Challenge (Liverpool)
The second fixture in the British Athletics Cross Challenge took place in Liverpool on Saturday afternoon and our own Lauren ‘Sooper’ Cooper took part. In a field packed with GB athletes, she finished in a very impressive 41st position.
Howling Bull V
This week saw the annual Howling Bull race take place in Walford, near Goodrich. The muddy 6-mile trail race features a choice of routes near the end of the course – either a steep descent with the chance of a fall or the more runnable route which could take you longer. All of our runners stayed vertical although Sam did decide to go a little off piste.
