Results Round Up
This week we have results to round up for you from Cwmtawe, Cardiff, Glasgow and Alton Towers.
Wednesday 8th November was the Afan Nedd Tawe Secondary Schools & Colleges Apollo Teaching Services 3 x 1100m cross country relays at Cwmtawe Community School. There was a fantastic entry of 110 teams, almost double from 2022 65 teams. Over a flat but very muddy course there were plenty of Swansea Harriers representing their school teams. Organisers are awaiting some schools declaration sheets, but here are the provisional results to date for your viewing 08.11.23 3 x 1100m Relay Results @ Cwmtawe
Saturday 11th November was round 2 of 5 in the John Collins Gwent Cross Country League at Cardiff incorporating the British Cross Challenge Round 1 fixture. There was another fantastic turnout of close to 80 runners from the club across all age groups. Thank you to all our runners and team managers who made it such a great day out. We have three teams placed top of their respective leagues and three other teams in podium places too, wow!! Our scoring teams of 4 juniors and 5 seniors were as follows:
U17M had no runners.
U20M are 10th in the league out of 20 teams with Dafydd Jones having an awesome run taking the win & Cardiff Cross SILVER in the process!
Great photo of two Swansea Harriers each running their own race. Dewi Griffiths mixing it with the leaders and Simon Merrick, a former 800/1500m runner from the mid 1980’s who raced against Steve Ovett where he tripped up? The Ovett incident in 1985, completing his 210th consecutive Gwent League race. Photo by kind permission of Robert Gale.
Thank you again to all those who ran and equally so those outside of our scoring runners as they are very much a vital element of the teams, preventing the other club team accumulating as many points by placing ahead of their scoring runners. Click here for the full team and individual results.
Saturday 11th November was the British Masters Cross Country International in Glasgow where three Swansea Harriers had the honour of representing Wales after making the very long trip.
