All Schools Cross Country Championships on 21st July 2012 – Boys


The club was well represented at these championships ; 18 of the junior boys representing their schools.

It was a fantastic day for running, cool and sunny, and the challenging course saw some great contests.

Undoubtedly, the highlight for our club was the win by Ben Kelly, representing Haileybury College, in the U17 6km event. Ben’s was a dominant run ,to defeat the second place getter by 20secs, in a time of 20min 07 sec. Ben has trained very hard for this success, and thoroughly deserves it. He says he likes the hilly courses and these suit him. He certainly showed this in this event. Well done Ben.

The results are shown below; I apologise if I have missed any one who ran.

It was great to see the enthusiasm of our young runners at these championships and in them our club has cause for optimism of a bright future.

Enjoyment in the sport comes not from just assessing your own performance, but from being part of a team, and in helping that team achieve to its best.

Boys, our next event is a team’s road relay in Geelong, on August 11th.  Teams of three are needed to contest this event at the Geelong Criterium, a new set up in Geelong, and our first visit there. I hope you are all enthusiastic to represent the club in this event.

Please register your interest with me this week so that teams can be selected, and of course entered.
