South of England Championships Cross Country – Brighton 27/01/18

Four athletes from the Isle of Wight Athletic Club traveled to Brighton (Stanmer Park) with their coach (Paul Simpson) to compete in the South of England Championships. Whilst most of the team were gaining experience and competing for the first time in such a big competition Henry McLuckie ran in the leading pack and challenged for another title. Three older international runners took the medals this time, but Henry pushed right to the line claiming an excellent 4th place (out of 169 finishers). Flynn Powell, Milly Bacon and Mabel Lewis all competed well and the athletes supported each other in what was a great day of sport.
