Middle Distance Squad - Leicestershire & Rutland County Championship Results

Medal haul for the Coritianians at the Leicestershire & Rutland County Championships.

The Leicestershire & Rutland County Championships was held on Saturday 3rd January at Foxlands Farm, Cosby. The continual rain made for difficult conditions for athletes with them having to contend with an energy sapping course.

The Coritianians came away with 3 individual gold medallists in the shape of Neve Grimes (U15g), Ben Dijkstra (U17m) and Mark Powell (Masters Men). Emma Richards (U13g) and Caitlin Roper (U17w) won silver medals and Pascal Bouttier Butler (U17m) won a bronze medal.

Collectively, the athletes won medals in every race that a full team was entered with all but one of those medals being gold. The U13 girls team had to settle for the bronze medal in an extremely tight race where the top three teams were only separated by 2 points!

Thank you and congratulations to all those athletes who took part and supported the County Championships and also to their parents, family and friends - all of whom were wonderful in appalling racing conditions!
