MEETING organiser Tim Whiting has insisted that the Wiltshire Schools’ Cross Country Championships will go ahead on Saturday.

The event was due to take place at Grittleton House School on Saturday, January 18 but was postponed due to the inclement weather.

“I have walked the course and it is looking good,” said Whiting.

“The parts still under water we can avoid by re-routing the course slightly. Some parts are wet and muddy but in cross country this is to be expected.

“We are determined not to postpone it again.

“The fixture is on and athletes should come prepared for all weathers.“
