Rachel Goodwin wins the Harry Mills Cross Country Cup donated by Bucks, Berks & Oxon Cross Country League – April 2008
The 3 counties cross country league wanted to sponsor a Harry Mills Memorial Cup in recognition of Harry’s achievements in this sport. The cup was to be awarded to a runner who showed determination & commitment as well as athletic ability. Rachel Goodwin, aged 10 years, has regularly competed in cross country events, representing Spinfield School in Marlow, and has displayed a consistent winning streak. Once, she even arrived late when the rest of the field had a 400 yard head start and still won! Harry would have appreciated that story – he once was out in front during a race, wasn’t sure which way to go, so stopped, waited for the rest to catch up to find out, then ran off again….finishing in 1st place!
