Gwent Cross-Country @ Pontypool

A tough final event at the Gwent Cross-Country season came from Pontypool Park. Finishing around the outside of  the Rugby pitch, the course features a notoriously steep hill which is climbed 2-6 times by the various age groups.

NSAC finished a strong winter with their best-ever season’s results, a credit to athletes, coaches, parents and all support staff.
