Alton Towers hosted the sixty-fourth Junior Men's English Cross-Country Championships. The planned course was 10km and took place on parkland next to the park.
Jonny Hay (Aldershot, Farnham & District AC) broke away on the last lap to win by 32 seconds from Richard Goodman (Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers) with Ben Connor (Derby & County AC) taking bronze.
Hay told Athletics Weekly: "I tried to push on and test Goodman a bit and I felt strong and made an effort to move away and he didn't come with me. I love a fast course, but it's cross country and you just have to deal with it."
