In the under 15 race the A team of Vicky Ramsbottom, Melissa Boyer and Lauren Ferris finished in 4th place in the North West and 1st in the Cheshire while the B team of Lauren Goddard, Georgia Aston-Massey and Amy Gibbons finished 9th in the North West and took 2nd place in the Cheshire. Olivia Bush ran on the first leg for an incomplete C team. In the under 17 women's race the team of Lizzie Smith, Kiera Grady and Alysha Goddard also finished in 4th place in the North West and took the Cheshire title.
In the Men's events the under 13 team of Sam Evans, Jordan Jones and Ben Harrison took 3rd place in the North West and collected the Cheshire title while in the under 17 men's the team of Liam Burthem, Leighton Sharman and Chris Fance were 2nd in the North West and won the Cheshire title.
