Belgium Cross Cup event at Rotselaar on 8th February -
A large party of over 50 athletes, including MACs Dan Haworth, travelled to Belgium for the event. Doubts about whether the event could go on with Storm Ciara following them across the Channel were there right up to the off.
The English representation in the Senior men's race totalled 15 and they didn't get things all their own way, as in a hard fought race Lahsene Bouchikhi of Belgium won in 30.08, just 3 secs ahead of Adam Hickey who maintained his fine form after winning the South of England. Third was Dieter Kersten of Belgium in 30.22 before Ellis Cross led the other England representative runners in 6th. Jack Millar was next 11th, Jonathan Escalente-Phillips 12th, Zak Mohammad 20th, Luke Prior 25th, but DAN HAWORTH led the Northern Athletics trio in 18th while Matthew Grieve was first home for Leeds City in 24th
