William wins again at British Cross Challenge!

Last Saturday, U13B William Rabjohns won his 2.7 km race (out of 116 finishers) at Milton Keynes by 4 seconds in 9-12.   This, in Match 2 of the annual British Cross Challenge series, repeats his similar feat in Match 1 at Cardiff last month.   The series continues with Match 3 in Liverpool on Nov 25th and Match 4 in Antrim on Jan 6th.   To qualify for the final match, in Loughborough on March 10th, athletes must have competed in any two of the previous four:  prizes are awarded only in Match 5!   Well done, Will!
