In the U/15 Boys we only had two competitors with Elliot Smith running 14:51 and Louis Wakefield 15:08. Without a third runner the boys could not complete a team but should take encouragement from the fact they were in 23rd position after 2 legs. Well done Boys.

Lizzie ran 14:45 on the first leg to come home in 3rd position overall and 6th fastest on the day, Charlotte ran 15:35 and Alex 17:01 to finish in 47:21, this brought the team home in a fine 8th position.
