Thanet Roadrunners Junior Report for Saturday 28th January 2017

South of  England AA Cross Country Championships, Parliament Hill, Hampsted Heath, London.

Parliament hill fields, is renowned for being one of the toughest cross country courses in the country with plenty of mud and steep hills from the very start

This year The South of England AA Cross Country championships were held there.

It was a great day out for 9 of our juniors who travelled up to London for the event.

The sun was shining as we all arrived, collected our numbers and made our way up the hill to pitch our tent. The view over the London skyline was pretty impressive which only added to the excitement and anticipation for our juniors, some on their first visit to Parliament hill.
