Wickersley Y11 student, Evie Thomson, has been ranked by Run Britain as the National U17 Number 1 Female Runner.
There are 1000 runners ranked for her category, with 9000 total runners in the category, so an incredible achievement!
Evie was recognised in primary school for showing a lot of promise as a cross country runner and since then has gone from strength to strength due to her dedication and hard work.
Having placed 1st in all recent races, Evie is also the reigning Yorkshire Champion and is working towards performing at the National Cross Country Championships in London at the end of February.
We are all extremely proud of Evie’s achievement so far and look forward to hearing about her upcoming performance in London.
Congratulations, Evie, and good luck at the Nationals.
