Cross country runners to represent Berkshire

February 2, 2017

Widely touted as the fastest growing sport in West Berkshire, cross country running has followed a similar trend at Bradfield and its rise in popularity has led to success in competitive racing.

The girls’ cross country team of Lucy Kidson (J), Kitty Parker (K), Laura Hutchinson (K), Julia Merican (J) and Charlotta Neitzel (J) finished in second place at the Berkshire Schools Cross Country Championships, their first ever competitive event, which took place at Newbury Showground.

Laura and Kitty both finished in the top 15 and after crossing the finishing line the pair were handed envelopes containing an invite to represent Berkshire at the Inter-Counties Cross Country Match at Brands Hatch this weekend.

They will be joined by Ben Hutchins (F) and Finn Donovan (C) who both finished in the top 15 in the boys race.
