Over in Wales with a great afternoon of running and a killer hill for the finish our junior did excellent!!, They competed in a series of races around the Orme, racking up a host of wins on a tough course that started at the top of the hill, meaning the finish was a hard climb. Sam Annison and Clara (Lightning) McKee won the boys and girls under 9s races respectively, both beating the course records in the process. Charlie Pickens won the under 11s race, George McFie took 3rd place and Fearne Hanson was fifth.Thomas McKee and Ollie Pickens also did well racing hard.
