Severn Athletic Club’s 16 year old distance runner Alex Rawlings had his most succesful week yet in his 18 months running career. As reported last week, he won the silver medal in the Midland Counties Under 17 cross country-championhips. This was the first medal won in this race by a city club member since Steve Mchale at Nottingham in 1969. Rawlings was always in the leading group at the 6K event with namesake Liam Rawlings(Oswestry) having the fastest last 200 metres winning by 7 seconds in 20:07. Alex said ” I should have tried to get away earlier”.
