Spenborough's Josh Woodcock-Shaw gave one of the best cross country performances by a Spen athlete in the senior men's National Cross Country race at very muddy Hampstead Heath in London on Saturday 21st February. Josh finished 52nd of over 2000 runners and he was less than 3 minutes behind the winner Charlie Hulson from Sale. Four other senior men from Spenborough took part with Simon Bolland finishing 567th, Mark Leggett 1010th, Stephen Hunt 1412th and Ian Ogden 1685th. In the under 20men's race Spenborough were led in by Liam Stedman in 98th followed by Paul Davis 126th and James Anthony 159th. Tobin Rhodes was 123rd in the under 17 men's race and Natasha Geere was 309th in the senior women's race.

As far as I am aware this is the third highest place by a senior man from Spenborough in the National. Lee Warburton finished 44th in the 1994 National at Parliament Hill and Jeff Hornby finished 37th in 1994 at South Shields.
