This weekend (26th Feb) saw the National Cross Country championships held at it’s spiritual home at Parliament Hill in London, with a small group of 6 East Cheshire athletes making the trip down south. On a testing course, the first race of the day was the U17 ladies over 5k where Emilia Platt (pictured) finished in a brilliant 17th position in a time of 20:44, building on some recent excellent performances. Well done Emilia, going from strength to strength.
