On Wednesday 22 January, the Junior Cross Country Team headed to Scarisbrick Hall to take part in the North Region Junior Cross Country event.
It was a particularly miserable, damp and foggy day, perfect for cross country, and guaranteed MUD! We were not disappointed!
The course is the best we have experienced involving running on roads, tracks, through woodland, into boggy dips and over slippery logs.
The final straight looked comforting after the challenges preceding it, but it hid a menace…a bog up to your knees, forcing an abrupt stop often followed by a wonderful face-plant into the mucky water! The pupils loved it!
There were so many runners in each race, almost 150 and we performed admirably. Notable results were Fabian, who finished 4th in the Year 5/6 boys 2000m race, Felix who finished 19th and Caelan who finished 12th in the Year 3/4 boys 1500m race. Well done everyone and we look forward to returning, next year!
