The Children's race (Mini Dash) had 88 competitors this year. The winner was Paddy Welsh from Clifton School and the winning Girl was Bethany Johnson. The U8 Boy winner was Alex Currie and the U10 Girl winner was Jessica Kaul

As I am sure you appreciate it is really difficult with these kind of numbers to get all the finishing positions, times and spelling of names and clubs correctly. Apologies for that. I do think we have captured most. A queue formed towards the middle in the race (despite our airport style system after the finish), but the time keepers moved with the queue, so we believe most people will have a reasonably accurate time.
