Fine runs by BAC Juniors at ESAA National XC Championship

BAC Juniors Oliver Weddell and Lauren Bone produced some fine runs for Bedfordshire schools in the English Schools’ Athletic Association (ESAA) 2024 National Cross-Country Championship at Pontefract Racecourse, West Yorkshire, on Saturday March 16.

In the second big XC event for both in the space of a week, Oliver finished a highly creditable 196th out of 343 runners and 3rd of the Bedfordshire schools’ seven-man team in the Junior Boys race. Lauren put in an equally strong performance, finishing 204th out of 339 and 2nd of an eight-strong Bedfordshire team in the Junior Girls race. Well done to both of you.
