Before flying out on tour to Seville, the Under-18s participated in a tough challenge around Richmond Park - and our cameras were there to capture the event.
It all started with fun and games as captain Archie Procter introduced the full squad, but this was followed by a serious edge as the boys took part in a seven-mile run around Richmond Park.
There was a dramatic conclusion to the event as Elliott Bolton and Huseyin Biler could not be separated at the finish - a dead-heat called in a record time of 42:28! That's some going, but it was a day when everyone at the academy was a winner as squad camaraderie was boosted and one or two inquistive locals asked about our club!
Take a look at the full video feature below with commentary by Rob Cornell.
