St Andrew’s boys, Henry B (23rd), Lukas (24th), Alistair (57th) and William (58th) were 10th in the year 3/4 Boys race.
It was the turn of St Andrew’s 5/6 Boys to run next and they did so in style – Rory was 4th back, Sam 5th, Sebastian 15th and Ben 18th. This was enough to win the team event and receive the gold medals.
Neve 8th, Kelsey 11th, Skyla 20th and Ivy 32nd of the Dartmoor Federation were 5th in their race.

It was a great day for West Devon and Mhairi McCall of OCRA, who assisted with the running of the Cross Country event on the day, went home knowing that the all the cross country races she had organised for the schools and the Tavy13 Primary Challenge runs were definitely paying off!
