Neatherd High School, which has been hosting the sports event since 1985, greeted more than 120 pupils from five different schools on Tuesday as they each took part in a variety of different races on the Neatherd moor.

The top eight finishers from each race have now qualified to represent Mid-Norfolk in the county trials held at Sloughbottom Park in Norwich on January 23.
