Run to the hills

High school students confronted testing terrain at South Farms in Mangatarata on May 23 for the Thames Valley Secondary Schools Cross Country Championships. Each competitor raced over rolling hills, muddy bogs, and creeks, in an effort to conquer the course. Reporter GORDON PREECE captured the action.
