Pinewood Cross-Country Meeting

cross country 6

We were delighted to welcome Abberley Hall, Abingdon Prep, Beaudesert, Cheam, Cothill, Farleigh, St Hugh’s and Summer Fields to our 33rd annual cross-country meeting.

As in keeping with many Pinewood cross-country events, this one proved a great day out with the flat course proving quite cold and hard for some, while for others it was a slog! Weather wise it was cold with a little wind to blow the runners off course.  There were many supporters and children to cheer the competitors on.  The presentations and rendez-vous were in front of the school for a change!   The race would not be the same at Pinewood without these combinations we were told!

In any event Pinewood U14 girls came 2nd overall and we had some success in the individual races with:

Christa Cripwell 1st and Flora Fletcher 6th in the U14 girls’ race

Peyton Lloyd 3rd in the U12 girls’ race

Ned Corfield 4th in the U14 boys’ race

Our thanks for all the support given by parents and friends which all went to make a great afternoon of sport.
