Millie Fionda was consistent throughout her races and secured second place for the U8 girls. Eve Atkinson and Olivia Hunnikin achieved third and second respectively in the U12 girls showing enormous potential and determination.

Millie and Olivia also won the Prestwold cup for their age groups.

Owen Lightfoot was awarded the Lantern Rouge for most race attendances, and Seb Coleman, 6, Lottie 5 and Flo Lissaman were presented with medals and certificates for gaining top three places during the season.
