Cross Country at Lynnsport
Thursday 12th October
Fortunately it was a dry, relative warm morning, ideal for running. We took 20 children from years 2 – 6 to compete over distances ranging from 600m to 1.6km. The year 2s were first off, boys and girls all raced together due to a lack of competitors but top 3 were awarded medals in each group. It was highly competitive between our children who despite never having run in such a large race proved they could finish well, many of them just outside the top 3. Brogan ran superbly to gin 3rd place and a bronze medal.
The years 3 and 4 ran over a distance of 1km, in fields of 30-40 pupils, having run brilliantly were just outside the top 10, those within qualify for the next round. However Cooper finished in 10th gaining him a place in the next round.
Years 5 and 6 had the task of going last and running the furthest, it was a tough task in large fields but they gave it their all with Neve in 7th and Dylan G in 4th.
As always the children tried their best and supported each other with many of them saying they had improved on last year’s positions which they were pleased about as I was too.
It was a great morning and well done to everyone. Super Effort!
Good Luck to Neve, Dylan and Cooper in the next round.
