Good evening, Race Report fans! We’ve got quite a short report for you today - a tasty appetiser to Steve’s commentary from yesterday’s second Chiltern League match. Keep watching this space!
Chiltern Harriers had an excellent day at the second Chiltern League match of the season at Teardrop Lakes, Milton Keynes on Saturday. The team finished third with seven age group team victories, three individual wins, and a raft of top ten finishes.
The match incorporated the second round of the British Athletics Cross Challenge so each race featured some of the best cross country talent from around the whole of the UK.
