It was a record breaker for many reasons at this years Northern Athletics Cross Country Championships held on Saturday 28th January at Pontefract.

There were team gold medals for the U15 Girls, U15 Boys and U17 Girls.

It is the 1st time the U15 Boys have ever got a team medal at these championships (their best previous position was 4th in 2008) - so gold is pretty stunning!
There were some excellent individual performances too including a 4th place for Jess Parsons in the U15 girls and 2nd place for Elliot Bowker in the U15 boys. Both these performances are new club records.

The men's Senior team put in a great performance to finish the highest placed Cheshire team.
