To start the event off, we had the U9 boys and girls race together with 73 other children competing in this category. Representing BSB Sanlitun was Kahupotiki McDermott-Samuels who ran a superb race, finishing 2nd overall. Eilidh McFarlane finished in 3rd position and Kahurangi McDermott-Samuels finished in 4th place. To top off an amazing performance by the girls, Loppi Heydolph finished in 18th position out of all the girls. The U9 boys, who also put in an excellent performance, ran to a very high standard. Ethan Kei placed 14th, Alex Louvel placed 15th and Thomas MacCormac placed 16th overall.

Next up we had the U11 girls, which had 60 girls competing for the top podium spots. In this race there was a very high standard of young, fit athletes. Naobi Campbell excelled, placing 6th, Aimee Hall finished in an excellent 25th position and Jenny Xu placed a respectable 32nd overall. These three girls got stuck into the race from the moment the whistle was blown, pacing themselves around the 2km course and running with great enthusiasm, stamina and belief. They crossed over the finish line with smiles on their faces.

The last race of the day involved our U11 boys. Competing, we had Rocky Jing who placed 31st, Ryan Looi finishing in 44th and Taylor Lam placing 45th. The boys went into their race with great energy and support attitude to one another. They knew they were up against tough competition, as there were 60 other boys competing alongside them. They were not daunted by this prospect. They set off from the starting line with their minds very much in race-mode, striding around the course with great endurance and doing BSB Sanlitun and themselves proud as they crossed over the finish line.  

The children all showed great excitement, support to one another, positivity and enthusiasm throughout the event, so a big well done to all of them for taking part!
