U15 Ben Williams moved away from namesake Leatherbarrow in the last half-mile for a solid victory. Freya Murdoch followed up her Wythenshawe triumph to run away from Imogen Wharton by over 200m.

Evan Grime convincing U13 repeat winner, moving clear of Ben Keely mid-way through the race. Whilst Molly Mills and Oonagh McManus fought a close duel with Mills prevailing at the finish.

Top of the class in the U11 section were Euan Lawton and Beatrix Soper.
