There were very few representatives from local clubs competing at the Southern Cross Country Championships at Parliament Hill, London on Saturday 25 January, but there were two from BAC. Of 986 finishers in the Senior Mens’ race Rob McTaggart was a highly creditable 92nd in 57.58, and running equally well in the U20 Mens’ race was David Long, 26th of 105 in 29.35. A week earlier at Cardiff the Dence family were flying the BAC flag in the British Athletics Cross Challenge. In the U15 Girls’ race Bridget Dence continued to show her form running 11.08 to finish 6th of 87, and brother Jim Dence must be pleased with his 22nd position of 78 in the U13 Boys in a time of 12.36.

Pictures on Facebook seem to show Manol Dimitrov running what appears to be a cross country race, apparently in Llanfair PG.  Any more details?
