Additionally, the England team, comprising four athletes including Charlie, beat Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland to take team GOLD!!

England Under 17 Team:

The 4km race, comprised a return route to the summit of Slieve Meelbeg (701.9m) in the beautiful Mourne Mountain range, Northern Ireland. 

The JHI was Charlie’s second England vest and he has also won all three of his age group (U17) English Championship races this year becoming the Fell Running Association English champion.
