Inter-County Cross-country at Oxford
Very well done to Ethan Scott at Saturday’s Southern Counties cross-country match in Oxford. In a field of about 150 runners Ethan, representing Surrey, came sixth. With Surrey also fielding the first 2 athletes to finish and also the eighth finisher they came a very clear first in the team competition which all meant that Ethan came home with a gold medal. And he will still be an under 13 next winter.
