The Athletics Club travelled to Iffley Road, Oxford to compete in the prestigious Achilles Relays. An unofficial national relay competition, it attracts some of the best schoolboy talent from across the country. On a track that is steeped in so much history it was an eye opening and inspiring experience for the junior squad, who had their first taste of a big meet. The inter team raced superbly well to finish second in the 4x800m, behind a strong Coopers School. The day however belonged to the senior 4x800m team (R.Miell-Ingram, W.d’Arcy, H.Channon, T.Denning), who won The Philip Noel Baker Trophy and set a new meet record of 7.35.9, a record that has stood since 1992 (Millfield). The team were also awarded The Roger Bannister Trophy for the outstanding performance of the day.
