AS IS the norm at Stow Sports Week, the competition at both the Hillheid Race on Wednesday and the athletics meeting on Saturday was hotly contested.

For the ninth successive year, local lad Adam Priestly led the way on the Hillheid course to notch his 16th title (Adam was unable to compete in the race 10 years ago).
