Athletics: Terrific turnout for Harlow Primary Schools X-Country

Athletics / Mon 17th Feb 2014 at 05:21pm

HARLOW Athletic Club held its cross country event for primary school children in years 3&4 and 5&6 on Saturday the 15th Feb 2014 on Latton Common in Harlow. There were separate boys and girls races and the course for years 3&4 was 1.1K and the course for years 5&6 was 2.1K. Conditions on the day were really tough with strong driving winds and a really muddy course. The event was really well attended by local schools and athletics clubs (from Harlow and further afield across Herts and Essex).
