Chavi Pacheco-Hill wins the boys 10-11 age group in the X-Country at Botanical Gardens

Hundreds of athletes took to the streets and parks of Bermuda on Saturday and Sunday to show off their running prowess.

Nearly 100 cross-country enthusiasts aged between seven and 81 took to the hills in the Botanical Gardens in the latest round of the Bermuda National Athletics Association X-Country Series on Sunday.

There was plenty of young talent on show with double-figure fields in some of the younger age groups and the closest finish of the day came in the boys under-10 division with Adrian Myers just fighting off the challenge of Liam Horrobin by less than a second.

In the youngest category for girls, nine-year-old Zaya Zuill took the honours recording a time of 7min and 25.51sec for the one-mile race. She came home more than 20 seconds clear of her nearest rivals Solae Goater and Yara Muhammad.
