Juniors at the Norfolk XC Championships

The 2017 Norfolk Cross Country Championships were held this weekend, at the Charles Burrell centre in Thetford, organised by Athletics Norfolk and Thetford AC. As the county championships there were plenty of county medals up for grabs. The juniors travelled to Thetford to take part in their first Norfolk County Championships, and there were some brilliant performances from our young runners. Its a true testament to all of the hard work that our junior runners and our coaches, that they are not only confident enough to take part in county events, but they win as well!
