Congratulations to Lulu Gooding and Oliver Prince who won bronze medals at BMDC on Sunday

The British Middle Distance Championships took place at Rushmere Country Park near Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire on Sunday March 6th. A small band of Stragglers made the journey with the juniors bringing back two bronze medals. Rushmere is situated on a prominent ridge of Greensand rock providing undulating, diverse and well drained terrain. There was a mix of heathland, runnable forest and open park land with intricate contour detail providing varied and challenging courses for the runners. Lulu Gooding and Oliver Prince were up to the challenge. Oliver put in a strong performance in M16 finishing in 25:23, 1:28 down on the winner and missing silver medal by 3 seconds! Lulu had a solid run to finish in third place. Well done to them both. Full results are available here
