Easingwold Cross Country Running Festival
Last Wednesday, 67 children from Key Stage 2 took part in the Easingwold cluster cross country running festival at Easingwold Secondary School.
This is the biggest squad we have ever taken to an event, and that this many children chose to come and compete reflects the love of sport that our pupils have!
The year 3s and 4s faced a 1200m lap of the back field, whereas the year 5s and 6s had 1500m to run to reach the finish line. Each race had more than 40 competitors, so there was a real buzz to the starting lines as they children waited for the signal to set off.
In order to qualify for for the second round of the competition, children had to place in the top 6 of their race. 8 runners from our school qualified for the Hambleton finals:
Maisey – Year 3 Girls – 5th
Alf – Year 3 Boys – 2nd
Nancy – Year 4 Girls – 6th
Lottie – Year 5 Girls – 5th
Benjamin – Year 5 Boys – 1st
Zara, Holly and Sophie – Year 6 Girls – 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively
These children have qualified for the Hambleton final round, which will see them compete against the best runners from all 7 clusters in our area.
