Busy weekend for a final flurry of XC races!

The final XC races of the 2016/17 season for the Middle Distance squad take place in a busy weekend which see’s England star Emily Williams competing at the Schools International based this year in South Wales. The venue used will be the historic and scenic Margam Country Park in Port Talbot, & the races will take place in front of a neo-Gothic Country House, Margam Castle, over 4600m and we wish Emily the very best of luck with her second opportunity to proudly represent her country.

Delightful settings for the British Schools International - Margam Castle
