Humphries takes Welsh title
The Welsh Cross Country Champs went off in north east Wales yesterday with a great win for youngster Afan Humphries in the mens race. Non Stanford made it weekend to remember for Swansea Harriers as she took the womens title…
Whilst the English National senior races logged 1300 (men) and 550 (women) finishers, the Scots also had a healthy 450 men and 200 women who completed the races. In this context the numbers in Wales were pretty poor, with just 67 men and 33 women competing, and perhaps most worrying a sorrowful 7 in the junior (U20) mens race.
With a proud tradition in Wales for producing some top class endurance athletes, and many league races in Wales attracting many hundreds of runners, we are sure that Welsh Athletics will be doing their utmost to address this worrying situation of non-attendance at what should be the pinnacle of the season for Welsh cross country runners.
