This has always been a great meeting for Team Russell over the years. The meeting incorporates the European Cross Country Trials so brings most of the countries best runners together.
Cyane went in the Under 17 Girls race. After working hard over the last 6 months we are getting in to great shape. Cyane is doing the cross country season to give her a good base for the track season where we are looking for some quick times over 800m. This was probably the best Cyane has ever run over cross country after finishing a superb 9th overall beating girls she has not been close to before. The race was run with the Under 20’s also and Cyane was in the mix. This bodes really well for the track Season.
Our other athlete to make the trip was first year Under 13 Boy Zak Ferguson. Zak is finally growing in to his body and working really hard and is showing with recent results. Again against the best runners in the country Zak finished a superb 29th. I am really excited to work with Zak over the next few years and see him progress through the ranks and challenge some Team Russell records.
