Ethan's Cross Country Success

13 January 2016


Ethan Warren took part in the Lancashire Cross Country Championships at Witton Park in Blackburn on Saturday 9th January. He was representing his club Preston Harriers and ran in the U13 boys race.

Ethan managed to finish in an incredible 5th place which has given him automatic selection to represent Lancashire in the UK National Cross Country Championships. These Championships will be held in Birmingham in March. This will mean that Ethan he will be racing against over 250 U13s athletes from across the UK which will be a great experience for him.

What a fabulous achievement and it is a testament to the hard work that Ethan puts into his training each week. Ethan attends training sessions at least 4 times week and Preston Harriers have helped him to develop his running skills and technique. 

There is no rest for Ethan now as he is preparing for the Lancashire Schools Cross Country in February where he is hoping for another strong performance.

Well done Ethan. We look forward to hearing about the results from events you are taking part in during February and March this year.
