It was a super Sunday for Hunts AC as their runners enjoyed individual and team success at the Cambridgeshire County Cross-Country Championships.
The local club dominated the Under 11 Boys age bracket at Priory Park, in St Neots, as Alasdair Large raced to glory from clubmate Tom Richards.
Their performances – along with that of fifth-placed Edward Jennings – earned team honours with Hunts AC enjoying further success in the Veteran Men category thanks to third-placed Ty Farrer, Dave Connell in fourth and seventh finisher Rod McKee.
Those three men also contributed to a silver medal-winning effort at Senior Men level with Jamie Hall, Darren Matthews and Nick Osborn also contributing well.
