More than 200 nine to 13-year-old athletes from various clubs across the Lower Mainland attended the two-day meet.

South Surrey-based Ocean Athletics won the Team Aggregate for the boys, while the Langley Mustangs won for the girls.

The event also included several Track Rascals events for children aged six to eight.
