Congratulations Sam

A report from England Athletics on January 27th tells us that in Cardiff at the weekend  a number of athletes were given the chance to run for England for the first time and took on teams representing Wales.

A winning debut  from Sam Stevens (Coach: Alan Maddocks, Club: Leicester Coritanian AC) in the Under 20 Men’s race; he had a close tussle with Jonathan Shields (Club: Sheffield & Dearne) throughout the race - eventually getting away on the last lap to win in a time of 26.01, just 5 secs ahead of his England teammate. 

For all Cross Country clubs: you should have been notified that the Midlands XC Champs on Saturday 30th January 2016 has a new venue.

Due to the water logged ground conditions on Stafford Common the venue cannot be used for the MCAA Cross Country Championship. The championships will now take place at Prestwold Hall, Loughborough, LE12 5SQ.

All team managers will be contacted with the new travel directions by the MCAA.

The timetable for the event remains unchanged.  www.midlandathletics.org.uk/
