Golds for Amelia, Chloe & Jan as locals star at County Championships

Newark Athletic Club

Newark Athletic Club opened the the new year at the Notts County Cross Country Championships held at Heanor on Saturday.

Joseph Monk’s welcome return to form and fitness continued with 3rd place finish in the U13 boys race while there was a fantastic first place for Amelia Chrispin in the U15 girls race,  both youngsters qualifying for the inter-counties. 

Amelia ran strongly from start to finish and managed to cross the line 44 seconds ahead of her nearest Nottinghamshire rival. This was her second gold medal in the event, she first won the title as a under eleven in 2016.

Ed Buck finished 2nd in the U20 mens race and Rebecca Gallop 3rd in the senior female race, both will now represent Notts at the inter-counties in March.

Big well done to Jan Bailey finishing first in the V45 category. 

Club President Gareth Bagguley told Radio Newark Sport “It was fantastic to see so many runners representing the club today and having enough to enter some teams. The men’s masters team did us proud by coming 3rd overall!  Brilliant work Jan, Geoff, Damian and Adi” 

Twenty Four hours later and it was the turn of the Lincolnshire runners in their County Championships held at Biscathorpe, Louth.
Cloe Hubbard continued where she left off last season finishing 1st Lady, in the under twenty ladies Tilly Owen's came 3rd and Lauren Owen's 4th.
