CROSS COUNTRY RUNNING RACES

12th October 2016

10 schools, which was over 250 children, took part in the KS 2 Cross Country racing which was held in the beautiful grounds of Bicton College and in the sunshine! The course started at the cricket pavilion and cricket field and took the runners into the other two nearby fields following the fence line. This involved an uphill stretch, which although no great incline will have tested young legs. As always, most runners set of at a great rate of knots, but cross country is all about the children working to their potential and having a sense of achievement because they completed the course, and a rapid start doesn’t help this!

All children received a sticker with their place on when they came over the finish line and this was recorded on school score sheets. The top four placed children in each school team determined the teams overall performance. However if schools did not have 4 or more runner in an age group then there were individual awards, and all children who took part received a participation certificate.

A “stewards enquiry” was deemed necessary to determine the winner of the highly competitive Year 5/6 boys race and so both the fastest two boys were awarded joint first place. It was an excellent sporting gesture to watch them shake hands after the decision had been made.

Bicton College provided leaders with the support of the Bicton College Sports Maker. It was their task to keep the runners motivated as they ran their race…and sometimes they had to join in!

There were many parents and grandparents watching the races who made an enthusiastic crowd cheering on all the young runners.

This event does feed through to the East Devon finals and all the results are on the following page.

WELL DONE TO ALL THE RUNNERS AND TEACHERS FOR GETTING THEM THERE!
