It was a tough course, longer than most had raced before but everyone raced their hardest and now know what to expect for the next one.

A big thank you for the great team spirit and the lots of cheering on too, also a well done to all the parents who braved the chilly openness of the Downs and got all the athletes there on time and ready to race.

Great job to all and well done.
