King’s Ely welcomed hundreds of young athletes as the school played host to the Cambridgeshire County Schools Cross Country.

Runners from across the county braved the mid-January chill on Saturday morning to take on the course located on the school’s grounds on Barton Road.

Similar to last year’s event, Cambridge dominate proceedings; winning six out of the eight individual races.

Huntingdon also tasted success, with Isabelle Wilkins and Ashley Quince winning the Minor Girls and Minor Boys races respectively.

Ely’s morning was less succesful, with Rebecca Daniel’s second-place finish in the Inter Girls race the city’s only top-three finish.
