A squad of nearly 50 runners travelled to Hampstead Heath on Saturday 19 November as Team Richmond kicked off the 2017 London Youth Games at the Cross Country competition.
The competition saw over 1000 participants from across London compete at Parliament Hill, with Team Richmond represented by runners from 27 different schools in the U11, U13, U15 and U17 categories.
Wearing the brand new Team Richmond kit sponsored by the Harlequins Foundation, the first race of the morning saw the U15 girls get off to a great start, securing team silver with Ava White taking individual silver as well, finishing just two seconds behind the winner.
The U15 boys followed, finishing in 12th place overall. Next up were the U11 girls, followed by the U11 boys. This was the first experience of LYG Cross Country for the U11’s and they did not disappoint, with the girls finishing 5th and the boys securing team bronze. Both U13’s teams followed, with the girls finishing in 12th and the boys in 8th. Finally it was the turn of the U17’s, with the girls finishing 6th and the U17 boys rounding off the day in 5th position.
An excellent set of results contributed to the girls squad finishing in 4th place out of the 33 boroughs, with the boys in 7th.

The combined scores of the squad leave Richmond in 4th position in the Jubilee Trophy standings. The next event in the London Youth Games will be the boys’ cricket at Harrow Leisure Centre in late January.
