Coolum the mountain kings

A team of runners from Coolum Primary School won the relay event at last month’s King of the Mountain Festival at Pomona.

Jarah Armstrong, Jai Tuppen, Jesse Law and Jacob Hampson – the J team – beat 48 other school teams to win the 4x700-metre race around the town.

The boys received a plaque on the perpetual trophy, a medallion each and $60 in prize money.

Taylor Brown, Isabella Nichols, Lara Carrington and Amy Walters took on a tough field of 38 teams in the girls’ event and finished a creditable fifth.

The eight students then competed in the combined tug-of-war and reached the semi-finals.
