Inter-House Cross-Country Results

cross country 35

The race day was quite warm and sunny for the third week in January compared to what could have been happening.  The ground was soft, muddy and with just a bit of water.  The supporters’ club was out in force…… what more could we want?!

Prep school pupils were ready, wearing brightly coloured house T-shirts, the Headmaster was handing out Mars Bars at the finish, Mr Cooper’s strains of Chariots of Fire pushed the runners in the final 200 metres and the nurses were there to hand out support if anyone came over the line needing TLC. Our thanks to all the parents, grandparents, friends and dogs, who turned up to watch, encourage and shout. Special mention this year goes to the eleven staff who ran round with the children with a total of 55,330 metres under their trainers.  Well done especially Mr Fast Feet Fuller!!
