Ellie was runner-up in the South West Schools’ and the 14-year-old wil be looking to improve her excellent 14th in the junior girls’ age group last year.

Older sistEllieandHannahHobbsMidsCCC2016er Hannah was also a silver medal winner at the South West but in the inter girls’ race and the 16-year-old will also be looking to better her 25th place a year ago.

The sisters (pictured left), who are member of Westbury Harriers and coached by Pat Gallagher, are two of Avon’s brightest hopes but other names to look out for include Abdi Hasan in the junior boys, Hugh Sadler in the inter boys and both Ellie Wallace and Ellie Leather in the senior girls.
