Three Counties Running Club junior, Morgan, on fire at regions
PUBLISHED: 07:24 24 January 2018
A fantastic weekend of running by Three Counties Running Club which started on a cold and wet Saturday morning at Burghley House in the Regions Cross Country event.
Morgan Harrison, 15, who goes to the University Academy Holbeach represented South Lincolnshire in the 5.7k event for the Under 17’s finishing in a very respectable 31st place.
Morgan had worked really hard to get there by qualifying in November 2017 at the Princess Ann Arena in Boston where he finished in 9th place.
Sunday saw a fantastic turnout at the Shouldham XC Series with 15 runners braving the cold and snow.
Again the Juniors represented the club brilliantly with both winning prizes for 2nd and 3rd place. Morgan Harrison coming 2nd in the U17 in a time of 19:12 and Joely Apps also in U17 in a time of 32:35.

Lee Johnson 20:24
