SIX young athletes represented Herefordshire at the Inter Counties Cross Country Championships at Wollaton Park in Nottingham.

The sun shone and it was much dryer underfoot than expected, perfect conditions for racing and brilliant running from them all.

The athletes were Ruben Mabberley, Fred Tyler, Saffi Reid, Isabel North, Lucy Tetley and Harry Lewis. They were aided by team manager Bronwen Tyler-Jones who helped co-ordinate team green.
