Amy showed her pedigree in the ladies race by placing third with fellow teammates Cara and Shannon coming seventh and eighth respectively. Epworth is also proud of past pupils Tamika Haw (class of 2009) and Tracey Oellermann­ (class of 2018) who came second and sixth respectively, and of staff members Kim Peek and Melissa van Rooyen for ending in ninth and tenth positions respectively.
