However it was the juniors who set the standard  for what was to be a great day  for the club. Small in numbers but not in stature in what was a mixed race here are the following results.

Under 12 girls: 1st Poppy Wilde. 5th Louisa Hamilton. Under 14 girls: 1st Poppy Old . 2nd Lucy Milburn. 4th Bella Russell. Under 16 girls: 5th Imogen King (making her debut for the club). Good team work by the Elswick Seniors too and some fastest times too – Great running!
