City of Norwich Athletic Club are celebrating success at the English Road Running Association (ERRA) National Road Relays in Birmingham.
That is thanks to the trio of Katie Goldsmith, Emma Hunter and Femke Rosbergen finishing third in the U15 girls team competition at Sutton Park.
The success followed hot on the heels of the same trio winning gold at the South of England Road Relays event in Bedford two weeks earlier – making for a fine start to the cross country season for the Conac youngsters.
Goldsmith ran the first leg in 14.28 minutes, handing over to Hunter with the Conac A team in 13th place. Hunter's leg of 14.41 moved the trio up to sixth place and then Rosbergen's leg of 13.57 moved them onto the podium. Rosbergsen's time was the seventh best on the day and Goldsmith's the 21st best.
The Conac B team finished in 19th place, with Sophie Peach (16.01), Ellie Taylor (14.52) and Meredith Winship (14.40) finishing in a total time of 45.33.
