Primary Schools’ Cross Country 2016

The sun was shining on us this year with a surprisingly hot October day. We were blessed with warm sunshine from start to finish. The atmosphere was once again 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 3 Fun Run

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.
