‘Triathlete’ success at the 2018 National Cross Country Championships

Continuing our coverage of triathletes (past and present) featuring highly during the major domestic Cross Country running season, yesterday (Saturday) saw the English, Welsh and Scottish National Championships.

The English Champs at Parliament Hill saw former Junior international triathlete Adam Hickey take his first senior national title, while in the women’s event, the Sale Harriers pair of Georgia Taylor-Brown and Katie Hewison (fourth and fifth), helped their club to the team title.

In Swansea, Bronwen Owen took top spot in the Senior Welsh Championships.

Plenty more familiar multipart names too appearing towards the top of the results listings…
