Test Valley School was this year’s new venue for the cluster schools’ Cross Country event. There was also a new format this year with the introduction of a Year 4 race and competition runners from the whole year group could compete not just Elite and Intermediate runners.
The atmosphere was electric with lots of cheers and encouragement for all the pupils taking part. The event started with a Year 3 Fun Run which really did look like fun for most of the runners and there were even some smiles at the finish line.
Year 8 Young Leaders and Year 10 Sports Leaders joined in with the races and lead the runners around the new course so there was no confusion about the route. Some Leaders helped the pupils to warm up prior to their event and focus on their individual performance inspiring the competitors to do their best. They helped to marshal the course, collect the final results and record the medal winners.
The competition runners in 1st and 2nd place all received a medal, gold or silver and all the other runners were to be presented with certificates in their school assemblies.
