Harrow AC athletes win two medals at Middlesex Cross Country Champs 2019!
Jim Cooper and Chris Finill both competed this morning in the Middlesex Masters Cross Country Champs in a wet and windy Trent Park. The conditions were somewhat different to those experienced by athletes just over a week ago in the National Cross Country Championships held in Leeds, when the sun was shining and the temperature was touching 20 degrees!.
Jim Cooper, was outrun by Trent Park Running Club athlete Charles Bruce. Charles finished in first position in a time of 37:06, whilst Jim came in second in a time of 37:28.
In the second race of the day Chris Finill also enjoyed a classic old school cross country course, with mud, streams, hills, wooded sections, wind and rain. Chris won the v60 race in a time of 31:55, just a few seconds ahead of second place athlete Pete Crockford from London Heathside.
Many thanks go to Damian Nevins, who although far too young to compete did do a sterling job cheering and encouraging the athletes.
