Wil­liams bagged the fastest lap prize to help the U13 boys win sil­ver, tak­ing on the first lap and sprint­ing away from his op­po­si­tion from the off, com­ing home in the lead in a time of 10.31 on the 3km course.

He was backed up by Nathan Hack­ley (11.06), Alex Al­dred (11.07) and Tom Hunter (10.54) to record an over­all time of 43.38, just eight sec­onds be­hind the win­ners.

The B team, mean­while, fin­ished 17th out of 34, thanks to the ef­forts of Thomas Job (11.12), Matt Clifford (12.00), Zach Ra­haman (12.02) and Seb Porter (12.08).

Orla Wil­liams ran strongly on first leg to record 11.54 for the U13 girls, and with Mil­lie Hughes run­ning 12.43 and Olivia Cameron 11.58, they fin­ished a cred­itable 20th out of 56. Ji­naan Lock­wood (13.05) and Jess Pullen (14.22) ran in an in­com­plete B team.

Both male and fe­male U15 teams found the go­ing tough. The girls A team were 31st – Robyn Watkins (12.15), So­raya Lock­wood (12.14), and Beth Wel­ham (12.34) – and the B team 53rd – Emily Alder­son (12.48), Sandie Pohlman (13.07) and Am­ber Restall (13.54).

The boys A team, mostly first years, were 33rd – Cameron Reid (10.22), Tommy Davies (10.46), Oliver Jack­son (11.22), and Ed­ward Wat­son (11.42), while the in­com­plete B team fea­tured a 12.47 from Kris­tian Everiss and an 11.58 from Ben How­ell.

The U17 men and women both had two full teams out, and from 43 com­plete teams, the women were 13th – Scar­lett Wa­ger-Leigh (11.16), Emily Ban­nis­ter (11.28) and Rachel Pad­wick (11.51), while the Bs were 32nd – Orla Fawcett (11.47), Maddy Lacey (12.14) and Mimi Houli­han-Burne (13.04). Jess Orr ran 12.58 in an in­com­plete C team.

The U17 A team men were led off on the longer 3.8k course by Will Perkin, who ran 12.41, backed up by solid runs from Richard Slade (13.32), Sam How­ell (13.11) and David Thomas (13.51) for 15th from 28 teams. The B team of An­gus Deni­son-Smith (13.44), Will Brown (13.55), Ge­orge Brown (13.27) and Seb Mills (14.27) came in 22nd.

The se­nior women were last up, with Bex Nkoane (14.41), Han­nah Mor­ton (15.35), Kirstie El­liot (15.55) and Han­nah Ward­ley (17.12) clinch­ing 42nd place from 71 teams.
