Hosted by Luton Athletic Club, teams of four girls, boys or mixed from Years 5 and 6 ran a one lap course around Stockwood Park.

Hillborough as usual figured strongly in all the races but it was St Josephs who were most successful, winning two team events with Ciaron Maher the fastest Year 5 boy.

Holly Lathwell was the fastest girl overall helping her Bushmead Year 5 team to the most convincing victory of the day.
