A Cold and Muddy Cross Country Race

Running All the Way!

Yesterday, after school, four members of year 5 took on a rather muddy and cold cross country race. Arriving at Wavell School, the children were greeted by a typically freezing British day but this did not put the children off. After a quick warm up and discussion of the route the three boys, who were representing our school took to the course, pacing themselves well. With some stiff competition, all the boys finished in fantastic places and showed great determination when running the whole track. 

Next up was the girls, both of which again showed amazing perseverance and although the weather proved a challenge the fairly flat route was on their side and they manged to finish the race in no time. 

Well done to Ella Bento, Chloe Purvis, Taio Odmire, Alfie Ralls and Ellis Wells. I am already looking forward to the next race in March!
