The Metropolitan League cross country season finished at a very windy, but not quite as muddy as expected, Alexandra Park.  Although the total number of runners was down on the previous fixture at Wormwood Scrubs, there were still 441 finishers in the men’s race and 244 in the women’s race.

Congratulations to Jasmine Palmer on another great performance at Alexandra Park. She finished second in the junior women’s race but was the first under 15 girl to finish. This crowned her as Metropolitan League Under 15 champion with 399 points out of a possible 400. What makes this even more outstanding is that this is her first season as an athlete with TVH.
