Allí estuvieron el Gibraltar Athletics local, el Promoción Algeciras, Los Barrios, San Roque, Club Atletismo Linense, en total, más de dos cientos jóvenes corredores.

Se disputaron un total de nueve pruebas en las categorías alevín, infantil, cadete y juvenil, participando un atleta por disciplina.

Ganaron los locales
La competición tuvo como ganador al equipo local (los participantes sumaban en cada prueba puntos para sus respectivos conjuntos), seguido de los algecireños, Los Barrios, el CAL y San Roque.

Se espera que esta prueba se consolide con el paso del tiempo y sirva para unir a toda la comarca y así remar todos juntos en la misma dirección e intereses.

    El Generakissimo chose to close the border on my 16th birthday a bit inconsiderate! and now I read about the Gibraltar Rugby Club, GABA and now CAAA participating in jkint cometitions with teaams from Campo and Amdalucia- this is awesome, sport is such a beautiful way to build contacts and understanding and friendship - and some of the names of the players and association officials - John Goncalves, Clive Clinton and then the sons, (not that old that they should be grandsons)of people that I played with for GCC, Joe Buzaglo et al - anyhow if any one can cast their minds back to the early 1960.s, I am Simon Allen, son of the late, great, Ralph Allen of Barclay's Bank - my word. sport in Gib has come a long way in the last 40 odd years, so my congratulations to all involved in these important initiatives to build linkages through competition
