Patrick Does Preston Proud

Sun 9 Dec 2018, Tilburg, Netherlands

Preston Harriers’ Patrick Dever (22) competed for Great Britain at the European Cross Country Championship men’s under 23 race in Tilburg in the Netherlands on Sunday 9th December 2018, over what was a challenging course featuring soft terrain, twists, turns, ups, downs, log jumps and woodland. The race started in typical frantic cross country fashion and Patrick was clocked as being 34th position after the first 1,000 meters. However, he quickly and skilfully worked his way up the field, soon finding himself in the top 10, before going on to finish strongly taking 5th place overall and first British athlete home in a time of 24:05, helping the team take silver medal.
