Kirsty wins silver at English Schools

In grueling conditions and bitterly cold winds, Kirsty Walker finished 2nd in the Senior Girls cross country at Temple Newsam, near Leeds.

The organizers stated that racing in the wintery conditions was "a chance to decry the increasing perception that kids nowadays are 'snowflakes'! Turn up, run, get cold, get muddy, enjoy getting warm again!  This is proper cross country weather."  And Kirsty certainly did that!
