Lifestyle / Sun 1st Mar 2015 at 05:48pm

Charlotte Essexools Inter Counties XC Champs to be held later this winter. Charlotte’s club mate Savanna Sirkett ran strongly to finish in 28th place. There were over 200 starters in the girls race.

In the year 7 boys race, Kai Boggon was just pipped on the line for bronze finishing in 4th place in a thrilling sprint finish. Sadly, Kai has been struggling with injury and had only just returned to training and it was ‘touch-and-go’ as to whether he’d even make the start line for this race. Club mate Joe Morgan ran really well to place in 10th in the race from over 200 athletes.

Kai and Joe have both been given automatic Essex Schools team selection and will join club mate their friend and HAC club mate Charlotte at the Southern Schools Inter Counties match.

Harlow AC Chairman Gina Bailey commented “We are so proud of Kai, Joe, Charlotte and Savanna, they are a real credit to their schools, community and HAC. They train extremely hard and deserve a huge amount of credit for their commitment and dedication to the sport.

“Training at least three times a week with our elite junior endurance group, we have a terrific group of young athletes who are growing in ability and numbers week on week, led by our hugely talented Paul, HAC coach and Essex Boys XC Team Manager.

“We are delighted with our new club kit, which is designed to stamp our identity within the local community – as our profile is growing we are thrilled to see the rise in our membership and so many positive comments, particularly from members of Harlow community who see are inspired by seeing our athletes training around the town.

We’d also like to say a huge thank you to Andy Smith at Mark Hall for the continued investment in our training and track facilities, which we hope soon will be at competition standard. We are also ever grateful to Your Harlow for their unwavering support of our Club. Its great to see so many Harlow athletes proudly wearing Harlow AC kit and flying the flag for their home town”.
