The Junior Club has had a very good year in 2015.
As a result of regular training throughout 2015 we have two members who usually win their respective Primary School cross country races , Ella Stadden and Mackenzie O'Dea.
Older runners have done well in School and County Cross Country events including Charlotte Fogwill, Ellie Romans, Connie Little.

Nearly 100 young runners have taken part.
Older Juniors regularly run in the Yeovil Montacute 5k parkrun, the Street 5k and Yeovilton 5k road races and our own Club 10k summer monthly medal series.
