ATHLETICS: THURROCK Harriers’ Gemma Holloway wrapped up victory in the Essex Cross-Country League series in the final race at mud-bath of a course in Epping Forest.

Holloway won all four of the races she ran in the five-race series and was a class apart in the thick mud and flooded grassland in Epping, finishing more than half a minute ahead of her nearest rival.
