Ed, Amy and Josh to represent Dorset at the National Cross Country Championships

Based on their stellar performance at the Dorset County Clubs Championships in December, Cross Country runners, Ed (Y13), Amy (Y11) and Josh (Y9) have qualified for the National Inter County Championships in March. In the December race, Josh had won the Dorset County Champion title for the U15 boys, Amy came 4th in the women’s U17 age group, and our cross country team captain Ed placed 3rd in the U20 men’s category.

Clayesmore’s Sporting Events Manager, Chris Humpage, writes:

“Three of our Clayesmore Cross Country runners have been selected to represent Dorset at the National Inter County Championships at Prestwold Hall, Loughborough, on 10 March 2018: 
Josh S: U15 Boys
Amy M: U17 Girls
Ed D: U20 Men

“The Inter Counties is the national final for club runners from all over the country. Josh, Amy and Ed have been selected for their performances at the Dorset County Club and Southern Counties Regional Championships. The Inter Counties is the second major event of the season, along with the English Schools Championships to be held later in March, and Josh, Amy and Ed, together with another twenty Clayesmore runners compete in the first stage of the selection process at the Dorset Schools Championships at Kings Park, Bournemouth on January 18.

“Congratulations to Josh, Amy and Ed on their selection for the Inter Counties, and good luck to all our runners at the Dorset Schools event.”
