On Wednesday 7th March, our team of 4 cross country finalists attended the Norfolk School Games’ Cross Country competition at the new venue, Holkham Hall. We had four runners from the Junior School, who all ran representing West Norfolk and Dereham SSP (School Sports Partnership) as well as representing our federation. After arriving in the drizzly rain, we walked the course to help familiarise us with the route ready for our races.
The distances were as follows:
Year 3 boys and girls – 1000m Year 4 boys and girls -1200m
Year 5 boys and girls – 1400m Year 6 boys and girls – 1600m
Finishing places were:
Year 4 27th
Year 5 42nd
Year 5 48th
Year 6 58th
Congratulations to our runners, with around 90 schools taking part and an average of 80 children in each race, these results are something to be proud of! Everybody conducted themselves brilliantly and proved to have great sportsmanship by cheering their fellow team mates on in their races.
