At the recent Ocean Athletics’ hosted Festival of Cross Country Meet at Cresent Park, South Surrey, the Royal City Track & Field Club’s XC charge was led by young and determined Emily Forsyth in the youngest competitive group, with a very strong run to set the example.
Big sister, Ava Forsyth, took up the challenge and paced her way to a 1st place finish in the 1.5km race.
In his first season of club xc running, Finn Janke finished 12th in the field of 24 10yr-old boy runners.
11-year old Max Holmes finished with a strong 3rd place in his field of 24 runners.

In the 14-year old girls race, Kate Stewart-Barnett finished with a strong 2nd place.
Ryan Roberts continues to improve as the xc season unfolds. In the Senior Boys’ race, Roberts put out a strong 9th place finish in the boys 5km event this weekend. Teammate Shea Janke, after a trail miscue, managed to still finish 5th place in a time of 18.47min.
Leading from start to finish with a well paced run, Grace Fetherstonhaugh finished the Senior Girls 4km race in a time of 12:12mins.
