A team of 12 pupils from Rowan and Oak classes- Oliver C, Oliver R, Rhys, Francesca, Marnie, Matilda, Charlotte, Heidi, Samantha, Elliott, Hamish, Jake – took part in this event.
All children reached the finish line, with huge competition, as 45 schools from across Norfolk took part, with hundreds of children! It was a difficult course across fields, through woodland, and of course, lots of mud.
Congratulations go to all our pupils – for some it was a real challenge – but they kept going and didn’t give up. All should be really proud of themselves! Rhys did especially well, finishing 11th place in the Under 9 boys race out of 188 finishers.
Also doing well were our other Under 9 competitors Oliver C, finishing 79, and Oliver R 98 in the Under 9 boys ; Marni 44th out of 190 in the Under 9 girls; Hamish 96 out of 244 in the Under 11 boys; Heidi, 88 out of 234 in the Under 11 girls.
The next Cross Country event will be the Norwich and Dereham Sports Partnership event at the end of October. We will be sending a team of pupils and the Gresham’s event has helped the children pick up on some top tips for success!
Running club is also focussing on distance running this half term.
