Following the final event of the season at East Hill on 9th June, the results for the Devon League are now available.
It is great to see that approximately 500+ individuals (or pairs or family groups in some cases) took part over the season on at least one course or another.
Final 7th July 2013: Grantham, Lincs
Well done to all the Juniors who ran for Devon at the finals of the Yvette Baker competition at Grantham over the weekend. With the largest team there of 32 runners they excelled in the heat, and was it hot, taking the runners up position just two points behind the winners. Bearing in mind our "second team" were in eighth place that showed our strength in depth and it looks very good for the future.
