Three Hercules Wimbledon Athletic Club athletes have been selected to fly the flag for Surrey in this weekend’s South of England inter-counties cross country championships at Horspath, Oxford, on Saturday, reports Tom Pollak.
Heading the trio is London Marathon exponent Claire Grima who competes in the senior women’s event with Zac Purnell selected for the men’s under 17 team and Ellen Weir in the girls under 13 squad.
Grima warmed up for this weekend’s contest with a strong performance in the second of this season’s 2XU Surrey Ladies Cross Country League Division One race on Mitcham Common. She finished ninth out of 204 runners in 22 minutes 14 seconds to lead the team to a solid eighth place. Other members of the all-veteran scoring team were Gina Galbraith (42nd in 24:05), Anne Hegvod (45th in 24:21), Fran Clarke (68th in 25:07) and Lisa Thomas (71st in 25:22).
