Ben Guthrie, Rebecca Addison, Harry Coles and Demelza Plant came out on top in their respective age groups in four hotly contested races.

Thursday 13 September saw more than 170 Year 3 and 4 students compete over a slightly shorter distance than their older counterparts. Rebecca Dove, William Chapman, Cherry Bowling and Oskar Walters-Hardy were victorious in some close finishes across the evening.
