Hillborough as usual figured strongly in all the races but it was St Josephs who were most successful, winning two team events with Ciaron Maher the fastest Year 5 boy.

Holly Lathwell was the fastest girl overall helping her Bushmead Year 5 team to the most convincing victory of the day.

Wigmore elected to field a mixed team and surprisingly finished only two seconds behind the leading boys team Hillborough.

Luton AC are inviting all of the runners to join their training sessions by contacting alan.daglish@ntlworld.com.
