Five junior members of Sidmouth Running Club made it through to the final held at Stover School, Newton Abbot last Saturday and all came away with exceptional results of which they should be proud, competing against schools from all over Devon. There were around 400 competitors over the various races. It was an achievement in itself that they all made it to the final having to go through the qualifying races at School, East Devon, then Exeter and East Devon.
It was a tough course which claimed several victims due to the muddy, slippery conditions
Toby Garrick year 10 competing against year 11 came 6th.
Katie Marriot year 8 came 13th beating many who had beaten her in the qualifying heats.
Ollie Beech year 6 competing against year 7 came 9th
Jo Ashby year 7 came 21st
Molly Garrick year 7 came 24th
Toby and Ollie will now represent Devon at the South West Schools competition in Cheltenham in February.
Sidmouth Running Club congratulates them all.
