It was also the first inter-school competition which was held over 4km and 15km.

It was a phenomenal experience to watch them run, jump, climb and crawl their way to the finish line. I am super proud of all of them!”

The boys’ team from Dalmondeor Primary took first place in a record time. The girls’ team from Glenanda Primary took first place.
