More than 70 competitors took part in this year's North Somerset Athletic Club's cross country relay event.

A beautiful crisp winter morning met the runners for this year’s cross country relay event at Clevedon School.

There were more than 70 competitors, three races, medals, trophies and great support from all spectators allowed the event to remain what it was set up for in 2005, an enjoyable introduction to cross country.

A massive thank you goes to the volunteers, without who the event cannot go ahead.

Also, thanks go to Brackenwood Garden Centre, The Club@Cadbury House, Peak Promotions and Children’s Hospice South West for providing goodie bags to hand to fastest leg runners, fancy dress team (Unstoppable Unicorns) and wackiest team name (One Man Down)
