The Novice Cross country championships at Scarborough on Sat. 28th April 2012.

Tess Constantine in the 4K - pretty in pink.

It was a lovely, sunny day for these races. We had the
Striders tent and food and drink brought along by Peter
Hibbard. I am sorry there are a few people we didn't get
pictures of - next time!

Highlights were Daviel Francken coming second
overall in the 2K in 6:16 and Sophie Gocher coming
3rd overall lady in the 2K and 2nd under 12 girl. Also,
Hannah Gibson and Emma McGlinn were part of the
bronze medal winning open Striders women 7K team.
Dad of Bec and Billy Highnam, Tom, made his juniors
proud by coming 3rd overall in the novice 10K.

The Scene at the start of each race was like this.
