Cross Country January 2016

posted 17 Feb 2016, 01:52 by J Tee

On Saturday 30th January 2016, some children from Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 all took part in a 2.25km cross-country race at Brunswich Primary School. It is hard to believe we are nearing the end of our first cross country season with the Sheffield City Finals next up. The Girls race were the first to go and 200 children ran. A very big mention to the Stocksbridge Year 6 girls team (pictured below) who all ran amazingly well in tough conditions.

The next race that took place was the Boys race with 180 children running. Adam Y6 did fantastically and came 6th and Tylor Y4 did well also getting in the top 30. The races were challenging but everyone did extremely well.

The next race is on Saturday 27th February 2016 at Graves Park. This if the grand finale of the cross country season with all the best schools and running clubs entering. The course is longer and slightly more challenging with the successful children progressing through to the South Yorkshire Cross Country Championships.  

Good luck to our Stocksbridge team in the City Final.
