Furious 5 series: Junior round-up

Furious 5 series: Junior round-up

Our junior athletes have been in fine form over the early Autumn months, battling muddy and wet conditions and taking the Furious 5 series by storm!!

In the first event at Victoria Park in Tipton, Jess Dale (6:08) and Cerys Brook (6:11) took the top two spots in the girls one mile race, and Alex Taylor (5:45) finished over 30 seconds clear of the field in crossing the line first in the boys one mile race.

At Wombourne, Jessica Dale (6:18) and Cerys Brook (6:35) once again took the top two places in the girls mile.

The girls were again to the fore at Warley Woods, with the latest members of the Hazlewood dynasty toeing the line in the Under 11 Girls one mile race.

Lily Hazelwood was fourth in 10:43 and Evie Hazlewood was fifth in 11:02.

Cerys Brook was second in the Under 13 Girls race over 1.5 miles in 11:55 and Amelia Hartshorn fifth in the Under 17/20 Girls race over 2.5 miles in 20:47.

And normal service was resumed in the girls one mile race in the final event of the series at Compton Park in Wolverhampton.

In the closest finish yet and in awful conditions, Jessica Dale was first in 7:20 just one second ahead of Cerys Brook in 7:21.

Alex Taylor was fourth in the boys two mile race, finishing fourth in 14:39.

Another brilliant performance from all our young athletes, with a special mention to Jess and Cerys, our podium queens!
