Northern Athletics and North East Counties Under 17 Men’s, and Northumberland Senior Boys Cross Country Champion Rory Leonard of Morpeth Harriers, who took a terrible fall in last week’s English National Championships in London, was indeed bouncing twenty four hours later, when he learned that he had been selected to run for England in the highly prestigious ISF World Schools Cross Country Championships,
which are scheduled to be held in Paris, France, between 2nd and 7th April 2018.
It is a richly deserved great honour for Leonard, who despite his London mishap,
has maintained great form throughout the season, and this was a timely boost for him,
and a reward for all the hard work he has put in over recent weeks.
Morpeth Harriers are very pleased for Rory and wish him well in fulfilling the honour.
Rory will be in action for the North East at this weekend’s Inter Counties
Cross Country Championships, being held at Prestwold Hall, near Loughborough.
