Backwell School student Gentry, who is coached by Alan Thomas at North Somerset AC, just prevailed from Cotham School’s Hasan, who may have just been a little below his best after illness.
“It was a really good race between the pair in what is a strong age group for Avon,” said Neil Miller, who helped stage the event.

Rosie Hamilton-Jones of Bristol Grammar School and Marlwood School’s Dalis Jones (pictured right), who are both members of Westbury Harriers, were also convincing winners of the inter and junior girls’ age group races respectively.
Imogen Moroney of Sidcot School races rarely restricting herself to just the school events so it speaks volumes for her natural talent that she beat British junior international track runner Anna Burt to win the senior girls’ title.
Notably Hannah Hobbs was missing from the senior girls’ field as she was on England international duty in Spain while younger sister Ellie was absent from the inters event with illness.
The senior boys’ race saw a clean sweep for Bath and North East Somerset runners with Ralph Allen’s Max Davis racing to victory from Freddie Webb and Sean Barry.
