Another early start on Saturday 11th March 2017… this time to Prestwold Hall in Loughborough.

Lily qualified for this race back in January at the Herts County Champs at Hertford Heath where she came second. This race was against other girls in her age group (year 7’s and 8’s) who have all been selected from their counties from Scotland East to Hampshire! The start was tough because they were put into narrow pens one behind the other so were not able to run at their preferred speed at the start. The course was on 2 big open fields with at least one hill… quite a tough course! There were 304 runners in the u13G race and Lily came a respectful 73rd coming in at 14:03. The winner was Bethany Cook (year 8) from Sussex coming in at 12:37.

The other Herts girls who ran were Mia Pullen (55), Antonia Jubb (149), Scarlett Gemmell (209), and Sara Laitner (246)… all year 7’s!
