Long distance glory for students

THE best runners in the region gathered at One Mile Oval on Tuesday to race in the annual Cooloola cross country trials.

With the first race commencing at 9.30am, students traded their books and pens for joggers and water bottles in the highly competitive event.

Running distances from 2-5km, some of the top athletes trained extensively in anticipation for the race.

Students who placed in the top six were selected to compete at the Wide Bay Trials later this year.
