Pupil's record-breaking run

And they're off....

A new UK record was set for the number of children finishing a primary schools cross country event on Tuesday.

More than 1,250 pupils completed the annual West Berkshire and North Hampshire Championships at Newbury Showground, beating the previous record held by Kent.

The event, now in its 20th year, was organised by Team Kennet Triathlon and Athletics Club and saw 50 schools represented in four races during the day.

Due to the event being held just before our deadlines, the full story, with results and two pages of pictures, will be in next week's (Thursday, March 29) Newbury Weekly News.

All of the photos taken by our photographer will also be in a special gallery online next Thursday.
