Conor Smith (U20) and Natallie Hatfield (U15) County Champions

With all the age groups running, this was a brilliant turn out producing some outstanding performances especially from the Bromsgrove & Redditch AC junior athletes. The course, over very tough parkland with a very big climb on the far side of the park, was made more difficult as the ground cut up as the races progressed.
