Dexter Heatley (East Northumberland), was racing in the junior boys race and finished in 38th place, not far ahead of George Bryce (East Northumberland) in 50th place, and Frankie Foster.
In the Junior Girls race, Niamh Adams (East Northumberland) was an excellent 11th, with Caitlin Creaby (North Tyneside) 20th. Freya Johnson (East Northumberland) was 15th in the inter girls race. Congratulations to our athletes who proceed to Intercounties.
