Three out of the 4 lads were running under age and have big hopes for next season. The U13 Girls fail to finish a complete team with Isabel Leyland first to finish in 263rd place.

The U17 Women only had Beth Strange running who finished in 52nd place. In the U17 Men race Joe Ford finished well in 35th place with an incomplete team. We had no U20 women in the results although they were entered. In the U20 Men again it was an incomplete team with Cameron Field finishing well to finish 4th.

In the Senior Men’s race for some reason we had no complete team but Danny Cliffe was 1st home in 27th place. It was a similar story in the Womens team with 3 running and with Liz Egan finishing as our first counter in 135th.
