Met 2019: Young Athletes

What a difference a year makes - last year sunny and 25 degrees, this year wet and about 12 degrees. Whatever the weather, this seems to make no difference to our runners.

We had team wins in the Under 13 Girls and Junior Men whilst the U13 Boys placed 3rd and there was an improved result for our Junior Women who were 4th. On the individual front there were wins for Abigail Reid (Under 13 Girls)and Ben Sloan (Under 17 Men), whilst Tilly Major (Under 13 Girls, Jimmy Geller (Under 15 Boys) and Kezia Beeton (Under 15 Girls) all placed 2nd, and Danny Raymond (Under 15 Boys)and Miya Maeda (Under 15 Girls) placed 3rd.
