WGEL Junior (U11-U17) athletes travelled to Merchant Taylors School in Northwood over the weekend to compete in Round 2 of the ATW Cross Country Series.
This was the second of a three race series. Round 1 (in October) attracted 600 competitors in junior and senior races. In Round 2, tight Covid rules forced the cancelation of senior races (restriction on over 18s) but the junior events carried on with strict safety procedures in place to protect all athletes and volunteers.
The event attracted high quality fields, including highly ranked South of England AA and Inter County athletes and winners of Met, Chiltern, Essex and Suffolk cross-country leagues.
