Two Bicester AC athletes braved the muddy conditions to represent their schools at the Oxfordshire School’s Cross Country Championships held at Radley College on Tuesday 29th January. The championships had been postponed for a week following the snow and the subsequent thaw and heavy downpours left the running conditions as¬†extremely challenging but in the Under 15 race Tom Gould achieved a creditable 22nd place finish in a field of 93, whilst Mark Smith stepping up in distance finished 44th in the Under 17 race.
