Two Bicester AC athletes finished in the top 4 in their respective races last Saturday as they competed in the second round of the ATW cross country races held in Northwood.

Fresh from his very successful track outing last week, Finley Colverson-Martin produced what was his best ever cross country run in the under 15 boy’s race run over 4km.  Colverson-Martin ran a strong race to place 4th (an improvement of 7 places over race 1) out of the 53 finishers clocking 15mins 42secs, less than a minute down on the winning effort.

Anna Jolliffe produced another strong performance in the under 15 girl’s race as she continues to compete well against very strong opposition.  Jolliffe finished in 4th place, just 41seconds behind the winner, clocking 17mins 04secs for the 4km distance.  Jenny Critchley also competed for Bicester placing 49th.   

Anna’s brother, Edward competed well in the under 17 men’s race finishing 11th out of the 44 finishers clocking 19mins 41secs for the 5km distance.
