Jasper Jenkinson competed in the U13 boy’s event, again over a challenging 3,300m course against 40 other athletes.

Coach Mark Jenkinson said:

“It was perfect x/c conditions on Saturday – wet, windy and muddy providing a slippery challenging course but all our athletes tackled the course well, holding their own against pure runners which was fantastic to see and a testament to these young athletes commitment to their training”.
