Oliver Mathew had a stunning performance in the morning by coming first in the Under-9 age group, with Jon Sayers coming fourth. Max Shubert and Callum Black came 10th and 11th, bearing in mind they are seven and six-years-old respectively.

In the Under-12s, George Case (9), came fourth in his first race in this age group, still only nine. In the Under-15s Christian Plaster was the top runner, placed seventh and a hearty pat on the back to Andrea Platts-Smith in her first race, eighth in the Under-50s.
