The Junior Women's National Cross-Country Championships returned to Alton Towers after a visit in 2008. Saucony continued their sponsorship of the event. The course was shortened on the day due to the extremely muddy conditions.
Charlotte Purdue (Aldershot, Farnham & District AC) completed an eleven second victory over Hannah Walker (Dacorum & Tring AC) slowly moving away from Walker as the race unfolded. Third place went to Louise Small (Aldershot, Farnham & District AC).
Purdue told Athletics Weekly: "I didn't really need to push away any more as those were tough conditions. I just wanted to finish and win the race. I always wanted to do the National as I hadn't won it as a junior."
