India Wins UK Cross Country Title

India Pentland (12BL) won the UK Inter-County Cross Country Championships at Loughborough on Saturday 9 March. India enjoyed her first national cross-country title when the North East Counties athlete took the under-17 women’s race by 12 seconds from Tia Wilson of Bedfordshire and Shannon Flockhart of Cambridgeshire.

“It was a really good race,” said Pentland. “There was a big pack of us all the way until near the end, when myself and Tia broke away. Then I felt strong and thought I’d give it a go.”

India has already won the Northern Cross country title earlier this year. Many congratulations India.
