Sporting Clube de Portugal wins individual and team titles in women’s race at the ECCC Cross Country in Albufeira
Portuguese clubs also won three of the eight titles on offer at the 2019 European Champion Clubs Cup Cross Country last February 3rd.
Edward Zakayo won the U20 men’s race for Sport Lisboa e Benfica and Fancy Cherono won the senior women’s race for Sporting Clube de Portugal. 64 clubs participated in the four races that took place in a sunny and warm day. Turkish clubs kept their good tradition and had especially good results in the U20 races. Darica Belediyesi won the U20 men’s title and last year’s runner-up Emine Akbingol went one better despite losing her shoe, leading Fenerbahce Sport Club to the U20 team title on the women’s side. The track of Aldeia das Açoteias, in Albufeira, has hosted European Champion Clubs Cup in 2008, 2014 and 2017 and the 17th Spar European Cross Country Championships in 2010. Laranja Tours is proud to give logistic support to the event.
