Race Report: Junior Men – Cross Internacional de Italica, Seville, 12 November 2023

The XLI Cross Internacional de Italica in Seville was a huge success for our 4 junior men, completing a clean sweep of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

Over a mixed terraine of hard baked soil and soft woodland trails the boys quickly on the 3 lap course exerted the pressure on the field of 43 junior men. Leading into the penultimate lap Rowan, Joseph and Noah opened a 10metre gap on Ethan, who also had 30metre gap on 5th place. Into the final 600m Rowan pulled away from Joseph and Noah, with both having a great tussle to the line with Noah just pipping Jospeh, with Ethan a comfortable 4th.

A great day in the Seville heat and great Cross Country debuts for Ethan, Joseph and Noah
