National League Final, GCH Men Silver Medallists.

GCH is a great club. I believe in our club, the athletes, volunteers,
parents are all amazing. However sometimes at senior level we don’t
show this as a club at elite level competition, we always have some
great individual performances but rarely as a team. This is beginning
to change, we’re showing it in Cross country and now we’re showing it
in track & field.
