WINDSOR, Slough, Eton & Hounslow (WSEH) Athletics Club contested in nine of the 10 races at the prestigious National Cross Country Relays and achieved great success at Berry Hill Park in Mansfield.

The pride of place goes to the Under 17s (U17) A team of Ed Henderson, Sam Hodgson and Will Barnicoat who brought home the gold medal by a clear 10 seconds.

The trio were backed up by the B and C sides that were both first home in their classification. Matty Smith, Luke Hynes and Alfie Spear were in 14th place overall.

The U15s girls’ team of Lotte Dewar, Rachel Cluttebuck and Nathalie Camp brought home the bronze medal.

They were followed by the B side - Freya Ruffles, Kiki Webb and Freya Wilcox - in fifth spot, again confirming the strength in depth at the club. Three of these six girls are also in the first year of this age group which bodes well for next season.

The U15s boys nearly matched their road relay success of a month ago but a fall right at the start meant they had a dramatic fight to recover.

Sam Johnston got WSEH back up to 43rd of the 116 first-leg runners, Luke Birdseye ran a great leg to get the team up to ninth position and Ethan Scott ran brilliantly for fourth place but missing out on the bronze medals by a mere 0.05 seconds.

Sixth-placed finishes were achieved by both the U17s women and the U13s boys. Jasmine Young, Katie Clutterbuck and Amy Young ran extremely well, as did Ben Dewar, Nathan Rollins and Guy Branston.

The U13s girls of Amy Cooper, Eloisa Symonds and Summer Chapman also achieved a top-10 finish in ninth spot.

Both U20s teams finished in a commendable 11th position. The junior ladies side of Meg Ormond, Maya Hodgson and Molly Jones were matched by Marcus Shantry, James Walker and Matt Clutterbuck.

The club is achieving great success and continues to grow in stature. The club welcomes all standards of athletes to come and have a try.
