Warriors Athletic Club shines at English Schools Cross Country Championships

Warriors Athletic Club had another busy weekend with runners competing at the English Schools Cross Country Championships for Merseyside.

Some of the older runners were selected to run for the County Schools at Wollaton Park in Nottingham. It was a very tough course but the athletes ran extremely well and represented their County with pride.

In particular, Meg Hoshiko was 19th in the Inter Girls race, and Isla Pastor was 17th in the Junior Girls.

At the same time, the Warriors were co-hosting the first-ever full competition Laser Run event held in Merseyside or North Wales.

With the support of GB Pentathlon, four full races were held for age groups from U11s to 70 years old. A para race was also held. Laser run is an inclusive event for all ages, and can lead to international competition through GB Pentathlon, and has been nominated for inclusion in the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in 2028.

Warriors have three laser shooting sessions a week and those who are interested can register through www.runwirral.uk

Coming up on 25 March, the Warriors have a lot of young athletes running for Merseyside at the National Primary Cross Country at Prestwold Hall in Leicestershire and also have athletes competing for the North West at the National Winter Triathlon at Stoke Mandeville Stadium outside London.
