2016 Staffordshire County Cross-Country Championships Report/Results
16th January 2016

Burton Ac Athletes descended on Sandwell for the 2016 Cross-country championships in the west midlands on the 9th January 2016.

With the freezing temperatures and the extremely muddy course, the conditions weren’t ideal and the athletes were facing a tricky test on the Staffordshire course.

Making his Debut appearance for Burton A.C. at the county Championships, Swee-Leng Chuah produced a solid performance with a respectable 34th Place finish with a time of 40.25 Seconds. He was also the first Burton Ac athlete to cross the finish line ahead of some talented runners from the heavily fielded teams from Wolverhampton and Bilston, City of Stoke Ac and Tipton Harriers.

Ailis Macfarlane, Following on from her fine 2015 Track and Field season, produced a fine performance taking 23rd Place with a time of 19.35 Seconds and just edging out Holly Dykes of City of Stoke Ac. Ailis will be confident on finishing the Cross-country season on a high if she can continue to produce performances like these.

Rob Sharratt was the second Burton Ac Senior Men’s Athlete to cross the line with a time of 51.26 Seconds, The last time rob ran at the county championships was back in 2014 and he managed to take nearly 5 minutes off his 2014 time and finish in the top 100 runners.

Paul Smith finished just two places behind rob in 96th place and will be happy with his time of 52.25 Seconds , albeit a difficult course and chilly conditions

Next up is the final cross-country league fixture at Woolerton Park, Nottingham on 16th January.
