Welsh cross country vest for Annie William

Team bronze medal in Glasgow!

Eryri Harriers’ masters athlete Annie Williams was selected to represent Wales in the W55 category at the British and Irish Masters Cross Country Championships at Tolcross Park, Glasgow last weekend (12th November). In field of the best cross country athletes across the country, Annie ran fantastically to help the Welsh team to a brilliant bronze medal, ahead of Ireland and Northern Ireland. On a ‘lovely upsy-downsy, quite springy course with bright and clear weather’, Annie was a fantastic 14th in her category, 136th overall and 3rd counter for the Welsh team in what was a race of a very high standard – well done Annie for representing Wales at such a high level! Special mention should also go for Annie’s logistical efforts in getting to the event which involved driving (a lot), flying there and back in a day and setting up a jewellery stall at a craft fair in between!  See link below for overall results:

Very well done Annie!
