Meanwhile, the Junior Boys came 5th overall, with Year 9 student Sam Pyne racing home in 1st place, a fantastic achievement! Josh Miller also did well, finishing in 7th place. In the Inter Boys race, Rory Morgan secured 5th place, with Toby Garrick finishing 8th and Jack Gibson 17th to give the team an overall 2nd place finish.

Meanwhile, the Junior girls team finished 5th overall, with Lucy Gosling securing 5th place and Kate Marriot 18th.

The first 16 finishers in each race now go on to represent East Devon at the Exeter vs East Devon Championships at Okehampton on Thursday 3rd December, together with two reserves (17th and 18th place finishers) who will also be required to attend and run (although their score at the event will only count towards East Devon’s total if any of the first 16 withdraw). As a result, Sidmouth now has 19 runners going on to represent East Devon at the Okehampton event. This is a fantastic achievement and we wish them all the best of luck.
