Birmingham University Athletics and Cross Country Club has been busy for months to prepare for the Cross Country Championships. It is one of the most looked forward events in the sport and BUACers have dedicated months of preparation to conquer the cross country championships. It has been an annual exercise of skills, stamina, techniques and camaraderie that culminates at the cross country championship event.
Birmingham University’s BUAC cross country team has been known to be one of the most competitive and committed to the sport. Their preparation program is equally robust, decisive, comprehensive and full of techniques to equip the players of the skills, endurance and stamina required for the cross country championship event.
BUAC has sent 3 representatives as part of the Great Britain team to the 2017 Euro Cross Country Championships. Victoria Weir and Niamh Brown formed part of the Junior Women’s team and Sarah McDonald competed in the 4x1k relay event. All three players were successful in their respective competition and they all brought pride and honor to the BUAC community and to the Birminghan University as a whole. More importantly, their respective contributions to the Great Britain Team made them significant athletes of the year 2017 for the country.
