Vale Royal Athletic Club

Stevie Wins Place To Compete For Great Britain

In World Cross Country Championships 2007

Well Done Stevie!!!!!

 

 

Following a fantastic weekend for the club at the British Cross Country Championships in Nottingham, Stevie Stockton's excellent 3rd position in the U20 women's event has earned her a place in the Great Britain team to compete in the World Cross Country Championships in March 2007.

This is a huge achievement for the Vale Royal AC athlete who is delighted at this opportunity to compete in Kenya, the home of fantastic cross country runners.  Stevie departs for Kenya on 21st March where she will compete in the extreme heat of the African countryside, a hugely significant contrast to the wet and muddy conditions of Britain.

The club are hugely delighted for this athlete who works very diligently in training with a lot of focus and is always ready to go the extra bit in training to make sure she is fully prepared for events, and this is one of the reasons why she is a very good athlete according to coaches at the club.  Club President Harry Evans praised the attitude of the athlete and wishes her all the best at the World Championships.
