AS LEONARD WINS HIS FIRST JUNIOR VEST IN
IAAF CROSS COUNTRY PERMIT COMPETITION !
Morpeth Harrier Rory Leonard has received a terrific boost in his first season as an Under 20 athlete, by being selected to run for Great Britain and Northern Ireland in the opening IAAF Cross-Country Permit competition, being held in Burgos, Spain,
on Sunday 11th November 2018.
Last season’s Under 17 Inter Counties Champion has already shown superb early season form, by finishing second to Cardiff’s Jake Heyward in the opening UK Challenge fixture a couple of weeks ago.
Two weeks after Leonard’s date in Spain, he will be heading for Liverpool’s Sefton Park, hoping to race well to gain selection for the European Cross-Country Championships,
scheduled to be held in Tilburg in the Netherlands
on Sunday 9th December 2018.
