English Schools Sat 18th March 2023 , Cross Country Championships, Wollaton Park, Nottingham
A major cross-country event returned to the grounds of Wollaton Hall for the first time since the all-age group English National of 2020. On a surprisingly mild afternoon in March and on a course that was ‘soft to firm’ in horse racing parlance, compared to the mud of Loughborough the week before.
For the second time in eight days, Macclesfield Harriers, Aadi Whitlock, Emma Johnson, Michael Wood, Jared Dickenson and Jake Ireland were again called upon to compete in a national championships for their counties, albeit in the school whole academic year age groups, rather than the UKA designated ranges.
· Junior Boys (Cheshire) Jared Dickenson 112nd -3rd team scorer & Jake Ireland 163rd – 5th team scorer
· Inter Boys (Cheshire) Michael Wood 150th – 3rd team scorer
· Inter Girls (Derbyshire) Emma Johnson 104th – 2nd team scorer
· Senior Boys (Cheshire) Aadi Whitlock 235th – 6th team scorer
This completes a brilliant cross country season for all the teams which has included great experience, performances and development for the future. Also a big thank you to all the coaches and parents for all their hard work. We can’t wait for next cross country season.
