The second race in the Manchester Area League Cross Country competition saw a strong turnout on Saturday from Liverpool Harriers with 47 athletes competing on the day across the age groups.

The race took place at Sherdley Park in St. Helens and acted as a good warmup for the County Championships which are due to be held there in January. On the day both the U15 Boys and the Senior Men took first place in the team prizes. The U13 Girls came in 3rd place, but only 1 individual finishing position away from tying for 1st, and similarly the 3rd placed U15 Girls team were only 2 individual finishing positions away from 1st place.

Well done to all who competed, results are available HERE. Congratulations in particular to both Ella McNiven and Joe Ford who won their individual races.
