Juniors Cross Country

Junior XC Fixture 1: Greenford


The NW London Young Athletes Cross Country kicked off on Saturday 30th September at Berkeley Fields in Greenford. There are 5 fixtures for the juniors over the course of the next 5 months.


QPH took a team of 7 athletes & for a few of them it was their first experience of XC.


The Under 11’s completed a 2000m course and the Under 13’s a 3000m course. The course was relatively pretty flat and conditions were ideal for a good fast cross-country race despite numerous football games going on at the same time.


A great effort by the team.

Junior XC Fixture 2: Fryent Park (Liddiard Cup)


At Fryent Park on Saturday 4th November we took a much larger team, we had 19 juniors take part, which was fantastic.



As you all know the condition on the morning of the 4th were horrendous, it had rained most of the night and was raining when the course was being set up.


Luckily the rain & the wind held off, weather conditions were great but the ground was water logged. The juniors got off quite lightly compared to the seniors however they still found themselves running through huge puddles and sodden ground.


There was a great turnout, 237 juniors competed across 4 age groups with the Boys U11 team coming in 5th place out of 15 teams.
