Here is our regular roundup of notable performances from triathletes at Saturday's Area Cross Country Championships

If Twitter is anything to go by, it feels as though every triathlete of note is currently training somewhere in Europe. In the sun. Still, that did leave a few hardy souls to take on the mud rather than worry about the factor-50 suncream this past in that most traditional of British sports, cross country running. Following the country championship events at the start of January, this past Saturday moved up in standard with the area (Northern, Midlands, Southern) championships. Here are a few regular multisport names we spotted performing well - including one winner.

Kate Waugh was recognised as the British Triathlon Female Elite Junior Triathlete of the Year at the BTF Awards last year, and on Saturday at Wilton Park in Blackburn won the Under-17 category in the Northern Cross Country Championships.

Carl Avery, Age-Group Duathlon World Champion in both 2014 and 2015 had a fine run in the men's senior race to finish sixth.

The Southern Area Cross Country Championships were held at the traditional venue of Parliament Hill Fields, where we spotted BallBuster Duathlon record holder Andy Greenleaf in 13th and former Junior and Under-23 Duathlon World Champion Richard Horton in 18th, while London-based Olympian and Commonwealth Games Silver medal winner, Gillian Sanders, finished tenth in the senior ladies.

The Midlands Cross Country Championships took place at Loughborough where we noted Caitlin Roper, winner of the British Triathlon Super Series (Youth) last year, was fifth in the U17 race

*** As always, we suspect we may have missed a few notable results - so if you know of anything significant we have missed, do drop us a note via [email protected] and we'll update this for you. ***
