Cross Country

Well done to Year 12 girl Heledd who represented Greater Manchester at the New Balance English Schools' Cross Country Championship 2019 in Leeds at the weekend.

The ESAA National Cross Country Championship is the most eagerly anticipated event of the winter for young athletes.

Organised entirely by volunteer teachers, the event brings together the best athletes in each of the 46 Counties in England to compete for the honour of being the best in the Country.

Entry to the event is by virtue of athletes being selected by County Team Managers to represent their County.

This was the first time Heledd has represented Greater Manchester at cross country. She qualified for the event through the Greater Manchester Cross Country Championships.

Heledd said: "I really enjoyed the race despite the weather and aim to gain a place on the team next year."
