BNAA Cross Country Championships This Sat.

December 3, 2012

The Bermuda National Athletics Assocation [BNAA] will be hosting the 2012 Cross Country Championships on Saturday December 8th at 9:00am.

BNNA President Donna Watson: “We are looking forward for this being an exciting event as this will be the first time that we will be having this event at the St. George’s Golf Club. The event begins at 9:00am with the U10, U12 and U14 age groups.

“This is a great course as it is similar to most cross country championships which are run on a golf course. It is very spectator friendly and rolling hills for the athletes. We are hoping to see several of the top athletes and road runners to come out and meet the challenge of the course. We should see some great races as we have had some good challenges over the cross country season so far.

“Shaquille Dill and Juma Mouchette with Juma winning out of the cross country races but Shaquille winning out in the KPMG Bermuda Front Street Mile Trials. Kyrah Scraders and Quasshie Douglas have been going back and forward with Kyrah winning the KPMG Bermuda Front Street Mile Trials. Ashley Irby has had an outstanding season so far and Aaron Jacobs. The High School group has really been exciting with Nico Barclay, Daniel Oatley and a new runner Nate Hartwig.

“The women’s race should be good with Rose-Anna Hoey winning most of the cross country races and the KPMG Bermuda Front Street Mile trials, but Ashley Eastwanik always comes out and competes in the Cross Country championships.

“The men should really be exciting with Jay Donawa competing against Lamont Marshall and Chris Eastwanik usually shows up for this race also. We will also be selected our NACAC Cross country team from this event,” Ms Watson continued.

“It is important for all athletes to know that there will be no late entries for this event and the deadline is Friday December 7th. We always get a lot of the younger athletes but it would be nice to see some of the older athletes come out and take the challenge. There will not be a lot of laps in this event like most of the cross country races we have had thus far.

Ms Watson concluded: “The distances for this event will be U10, U12, U14 – 2K, U17 U20 Females – 4K, U17, U20 Males, Open Women, Masters, Snr Masters, 60+ – 6K, Open Male 8K.”
