BUPA GREAT EDINBURGH CROSS COUNTRY 2012 – Saturday 7 January 2012

Coinciding with the Yorkshire Champs on Saturday 7th of January was the BUPA GREAT EDINBURGH CROSS COUNTRY 2012 in which three Leeds City athletes, JAMES WALSH, JAMES WILKINSON (Senior Men) and GORDON BENSON (Junior Men) were representing Great Britain & Northern Ireland against teams from the ‘USA’ and ‘the rest of Europe’. It is quite a historical event and our lads battled their way through the hard course. Walsh and Wilkinson were never far apart and came a respectable 16th & 17th Benson stepping up from reserve and making his debut for the Junior Men’s GB & NI team came 18th.
