Saucony sponsored the Junior Women's National Cross-Country Championships at Cofton Park in Birmingham. The course was 4.8km of undulating parkland and was expected to be a good test for cross-country runners.
Laura Kenney (Royal Sutton Coldfield AC) won by seven seconds from Jenny Pereira (Medway & Maidstone AC). Kenney was stronger over the final half mile to prove too quick for Pereira with Claire Holme (Ipswich Harriers) third.
Laura Kenney told Athletics Weekly: "I didn't know when to hit the front in the race because my confidence is a bit low. But the past month or so my training has gone really well. Today has given me a lot of confidence."
