2012/13 Cross country Season

The junior cross country runners have finished the season with a set of stunning performances and an array of trophies and silverware. The cross country season in Cumbria consisted of a series of five races in different locations around Cumbria. The young Eden runners were very well represented and a good number have completed all five races. Head coach of the cross country team Derek Hurton has been very pleased with their commitment to training and racing this season.

The U11 girls have put out a strong and consistently high performing team. It was no surprise to see them scoop the newly commissioned trophy, to become team winners beating the likes of Helm Hill and Carlisle Fell Runners. Maddie Rockcliffe- King was also awarded an individual second place medal in this age group.

Equally the U11 boys have had some excellent individual runs through the series, most notably was Louis Johnson. They too were awarded team winners overall for the season. Most of this team are made up of boys 10 and under which means they will still be very difficult to beat next season. Sam Almond, a recent addition to the eden runners team was awarded county champ for his first place at Keswick, after a nail biting finish to the line.

The U13 girls were delighted to continue their summer season success on the track by also taking the Team winners trophy for cross country too, awarded to them at the last race of the season in Bitts Park. The trophy was received by Esme Davies, the first runner over the finish line for Eden on the day.

Other deserving medal winners were Connie Hurton in the U15 girls and Claire Petrie in the U17 girls. Both have had a very successful season in their age categories, despite only just moving up this season.
