The Berks Bucks & Oxon Cross Country Championships took place in Oxford on Saturday. The event is the second oldest cross country competition in the UK, first taking place in 1904 when it was won by Slough Athletic Club. Disappointingly this year’s historic event was not well supported by WSEH athletes and thus the local club were unable to effectively defend the three age group trophies they won last year.
There were some individual success however, with Becky Atkinson winning the Senior Ladies race and newcomer Bill Hughes taking home the gold medal in the U20 age group.
Alex Tovey – England Selection
WSEH’s Alex Tovey,s form over in recent cross country events has caught the eye of the selectors and he gains his first international vest next weekend when he competes for the England team in a cross country international competition in Burgos, Northern Spain. With the Euro Cross Country Trials just two weeks away, Alex will be anxious for a good result in Spain to further impress the selectors. It is thought that the last WSE male athlete to compete over the country for England was Peter Standing in the late 1960’s.
16 years to the day, after joining WSEH as a ten year old, Alex Tovey will be representing England at the IAAF Permit Cross-Country Event in Spain.
His first selection for England is a true reward for his dedication to his training and hard work - Alex has always put the needs of the Club before himself and it is time for him to now put himself first and ensure that he continues to gain National selection.
Congratulations to Alex - a well earned and deserved honour

WSEH AC sent just Senior teams to contest the National Cross Country Relays event in Mansfield on Saturday.
Alex Tovey pushed himself closer to a GB vest when finishing 2nd in 15m13 on the opening leg in the Senior Mens event with a time of 15m13. Medal hopes slipped away on the 2nd leg, despite a promising run from 21 year old Alex Goodall for 9th place with 16m01. Ricky Harvie dropped another place to 10th on the 3rd leg with 15m54, this position being maintained by Team Captain Simon Millett with 16m36 for the final leg.
