Kent XC Champs – Juniors
Updated: Oct 9, 2020
We were welcomed into 2019 with dry conditions and as good as they are ever going to get on this course in early January. The wind and open expanse always make it a tough challenge, mentally and physically.
Under 13’s We had only two girls in the U13’s, with Scarlett Bennett (34th) and Inez Rice in (56th) both making their XC debuts for the club. Again only two starters in the U13 Boys left us ruing what might of been in the Team results had we fielded a full team. Gervace Card had arguably his best race so far coming in 15th and had he started his sprint for home earlier he may have troubled the top 12. James Barnes spent most of the race in 4th place but wound up well over the final 600m to pass the unfortunate Medway athlete with 40m to go to claim the Bronze medal.
