Mercia Juniors

I'd just like to celebrate what our Juniors have achieved this year.

Here's a massive shout up for the following runners at U12 or older who have all scored points in the English Champs:

Amber Cadman-Gibb
Jazmin Maddocks - 6th U16 girl
Revan Marland
Callum Mitchelmore - 4th U16 boy
Billy Starling - 4th U18 and U20 champion
Joe Starling - 12th U16 boy
Holly Love - 6th U14 girl (Holly has newly joined Mercia from Worcester AC but her dad Richard has been with us for many years and recently had a starring role on the cover of "Fellrunner")

We also have some very promising young athletes at U10 and U8 level :-)

We're incredibly proud of what you have achieved, especially those who have travelled to several away races. Guys and girls, you will have a few more joining you as Mercia Juniors for next season after yesterday too...

We don't yet have a formal junior section but I'd like to meet with interested parents and also anyone already coaching or interested in helping to coach them at some point soon so we can look at how we can do more to support and develop these fine runners and maybe start a more formal junior section.
