Craw blimey, Lara’s done it again

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS - CROSS-COUN­TRY

THE Cheshire Cross Coun­try Cham­pi­onships saw Fal­li­b­roome run­ner Lara Craw­ford get her year’s com­pe­ti­tion off to a fly­ing start.

Lara (pic­tured right) com­pleted a Cheshire Cham­pi­onship dou­ble in grand style.

Hav­ing last year won the Un­der-11 girls’ race, the first Satur­day of this year saw her chalk up a re­peat of that per­for­mance in the Un­der-13 year cat­e­gory, de­spite be­ing one of the youngest run­ners, as she’s yet to cel­e­brate her 12th birth­day.

Her win­ning mar­gin of 25 seconds around a very muddy and wet 2.6km course, set in the grounds of the Bolesworth Es­tate near Tat­ten­hall, vin­di­cated her trainer Richard God­dard’s belief that Lara would be a ‘tough cookie to beat’.

The year seven stu­dent at the Pri­ory Lane school is go­ing from strength to strength, hav­ing only a few weeks ago won the In­ter County School Cham­pi­onships when she was a Cheshire rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

Lara will now go on to rep­re­sent Cheshire again in the In­ter County Cham­pi­onships, which will be held in Birm­ing­ham in March.

And if that doesn’t keep her busy her swimming com­pe­ti­tions will.

Lara will be swimming for Mac­cles­field Satel­lites Club in the Cheshire Swimming Cham­pi­onships in Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary.

Hav­ing come in the top three last year Lara will be hop­ing to re­peat the suc­cess this year.
