Coach Mike McInerney finished with a bronze medal in the Senior Men's category after a hard-fought race.

Flynn McGurk took silver in the Cadet Boys half marathon of 13 miles with tough competition but remained strong throughout.

James Eve took silver in the Scholar boys 10,000mts race.

Arthur Buckler triumphed with a gold medal for first place in the 3,000mts event. Following a successful 2017 season, Buckler was presented with a trophy for becoming overall British Champion for the indoor, outdoor and marathon championships in the Mini Boys category.
