Inter-House Cross-Country Results

cross country 14

The race day was quite warm and sunny for the third week in January.  The ground was soft, muddy and full of water.  What a recipe for a good set of cross-country races!

Many prep school pupils were ready wearing brightly coloured house T-shirts. The Headmaster was handing out Mars Bars at the end and Mr Cooper’s strains of Chariots of Fire pushed the runners in the final 200 metres.  It was heard all over the village of Bourton (not sure about Marlborough).   Our thanks to all the parents, grand-parents, friends and dogs who turned up to watch, encourage and shout.  Special mention this year must go the eight staff who ran round with the children with a total of 39,200 metres under their trainers.  Well done!
