Tor Bridge Family Cross Country 10.10.2018

4 schools came along today to take part in our friendly Cross Country event designed to be a warm up for the bigger, city wide events coming up later this term.

As well as showcasing the vast amount of talent that our young people have this was an opportunity for us to celebrate one of the School Games value: Determination. We talked about what this meant and in particular how they could use their determination to their advantage during their race; this certainly had an affect as there were some very determined individuals and everyone tried their best and pushed hard until the very end.

It is quite a deceptive course and can be very challenging to complete the 2 laps but all of the runners went off quite quickly and were somehow able to maintain a great pace. Well done to every one of you—all of your teachers and family that came to cheer you on were so proud of you and they were great races to watch.

As the runners came over the line they were given a place card and these were collated by their staff—the top 4 runners from all schools were counted and the school with the overall lowest score for the boys and girls were the winners.

Building on several previous years of success, Bickleigh Down took the top spots for all 4 races (Y3/4 Girls & Y3/4 Boys. Y5/6 Girls and Y5/6 Boys).

In each race Leigham Primary were hot on their heels in 2nd place and almost inched ahead in the Y5/6 boys  - there were just 4 points in it at the end.

A full table of results can be found below.

As well as competing for points for their teams, the 3 fastest girls and 3 fastest boys from each age group were awarded medals: congratulations to Alexa, Katie and Naya (all from Bickleigh Down) who were the top 3 girls in the Y3/4 age group and Mylo (Leigham), Josh (Bickleigh Down) and Harvey (Bickleigh Down) who were the fastest 3 boys in this age group. Congratulations as well to Milie (Bickleigh Down), Amii (Widewell) and Freya (Bickleigh Down) who were the fastest girls in the Y5/6 race and to Matthew (Bickleigh Down), Finley (Leigham) and Harvey (Leigham) who took the top 3 spots for the boys.

Well done to everyone who took part today—I really hope that you all enjoyed the event and we look forward to seeing you back at Tor Bridge High again soon. I would like to say a huge thank you to our young leaders who volunteered to be our marshals and hares and to Hakeen and Sophie (Marjon) for collating all of the results.
