North Midlands XC league 2021-22
GAC runner Harry Denton has once again been enjoying a winter of Cross-Country racing as the local leagues resumed. With COVID-19 wiping out last season, Harry had to respond to the increase in distance that comes from moving up into the under 20 age group and racing against the Senior Men. Harry responded well to the 10K distance (2 miles further than the last XC races he competed in) and quickly adapted to the psychological and pacing challenges of the courses.
Race 1: 4th U20 (29th overall)
Race 2: 6th U20 (43rd overall)
Race 3: 4th U20 (22nd overall)
With 1 race to go, Harry is currently in 1st place for the U20 men’s league and is ranked 11th overall in the Senior Men’s standings. Races have been well attended, with over 200 men on the start line in each round.
