Away from parkrun, a big shout out to Lilia Purvis, who was selected to run for Northumberland at the Y7 National Cross-country Championship, at Prestwold Hall, in Leicestershire. Conditions were good and she ran well, finishing 115th out of nearly 200 competitors. It was a long bus trip, but worth the effort!
