The Inter Counties Cross Country Chamionship took place last month at Cofton Park in Birmingham.

It was a fantastic day for a run, with warm weather and a light breeze.

11-year-old Sosseh Badji, who trains with High Peak AC, had been chosen to represent the Derbyshire Team in the Under-13 age group and put in a excellent performance.

Completing the 3000m in 14:39, she finished 168th and gained 14 positions in the last 100m of the race.

Sosseh was third finisher for the team with her place counting in the overall Derbyshire position of 23rd for her age group.

There were a total of 305 finishers in the race, from 41 counties.

High Peak AC meet and train at Buxton Community Sports Hall each Saturday from 9-10am.
