The club again managed to field runners in each age group from U11 up and in the U11 boys, Sean Gallagher finished fourth to keep the team’s medal hopes alive.

Fourth was also the finishing position for Antonia Jubb in the U13 girls’, one place ahead of team-mate Lily Tse.

Tom Gaunce and Adam Grimes both made the top-10 in the boys’ race.

Thomas Cooper was 12th in the U15 boys’ and Charlotte Payne, running in only her second race for the club, calling it “so much fun”.
