Apex Sports Chiltern Cross Country League – Luton Sat Dec 6th
The 3rd in the Apex Sports Chiltern Cross Country League at Stockwood Park Luton saw WSEH AC amongst the honours.
The Senior Mens Race was marked by the return to WSEH colours of James McIlroy, a prominent track international some 10 years ago and still holder of the WSEH Club Records at 800m and 1500m.
WSEH AC played hosts to the Berks Bucks & Oxon Cross Country Championships in Upton Court Park, Slough on Saturday. The event is probably the oldest still active cross country event in the UK, first taking place in 1911 at Taplow Court, the home of then race patron Lord Desborough, with Slough Harriers winning the inaugural event. That race was for Senior Men only. The race has subsequently grown to accommodate both male and female competitors in a number of age group races. Saturday’s event saw 8 age group races with some 430 athletes taking part.

The best result came in the Senior Ladies race where the local club placed second behind host club Bedford & County AC. Charlotte Firth led the way with her 6th place. In touch were Rebecca Atkinson in 10th, Dani Barnes in 13th and Bex Myers in 16th place. There was a short gap before Emily Armstrong appeared in 25th spot. The WSEH contingent was completed by veterans Paula Hing in 52nd place and Helen Hinde in 54th position.
WSEH’s successful start to the cross country season continued on Saturday at the National Cross Country Relay Championships at Berry Hill Park in Sutton in Ashfield Sutton with silver medals accruing for the U17 Ladies and a 5th place finish for the Senior Ladies squad plus a 19th spot for the Senior Men.
The South of England cross country Relays over wormwood scrubs on Saturday provided another platform for the WSEH AC talented under 17’s to shine this time with the males emulating the recent success of the females, with both teams emerging as podium toppers.
