GCH is a great club. I believe in our club, the athletes, volunteers, parents are all amazing. However sometimes at senior level we don’t show this as a club at elite level competition, we always have some great individual performances but rarely as a team. This is beginning to change, we’re showing it in Cross country and now we’re showing it in track & field.
