At the competition held in Torres Vedras, the young athlete achieved the same score of last year's competition.

The Azorean representation, which included teachers Sandra Costa (Tomás de Borba Basic Education and Secondary School) and Hugo Parente (Manuel de Arriaga Secondary School), also took active part in the entertainment activities promoted by the competition organisation.
The National Phase of School Cross Country brought together about 1,200 students and teachers from different parts of the country. Azorean students represented "their" and "their" school community and "their" Azores with merit and sportsmanship. This is a further contribution of School Sports to overall development of students in the race for success.
This edition of School Cross Country registered involved the participation of 5,448 students in the Azores, more specifically 4,089 in the School Phase, 1,259 in the Regional Phase, 92 in the Regional Phase and 8 in the National Phase; the 42 regional schools of the archipelago were represented in the competition.
