The English Schools AA Cross Country Championships took place on Saturday 5th March at Wollaton Park, Nottingham. Three New Forest Runners were selected to represent Hampshire Schools and all currently study at Brockenhurst College. It was a very cold day, but the ground was soft rather than the usual mud bath.

Hannah Froud and Holly Collier took part in the Senior Girls race with Hannah finishing in 2nd place for Hampshire Schools and 55th overall. Holly finished in 7th place for Hampshire and 156th overall. This was out of a field of 307 runners.

Connor Lopez represented Hampshire  in the Senior Boys race and came 6th for Hampshire and 106th overall out of a field of 310 runners.

All three runners were delighted to have taken part in such a well organised and competitive race, competing with top runners in the 45 counties of England.
