Cross country runners show grit and determination
It was a lovely crisp morning by the banks of the River Wharfe in Otley this morning for the latest Leeds Schools Cross Country competition. We had lots of competitors, particularly in the U9 boys’ race in which Alfie was our top finisher in a very creditable 12th place. The U9 boys team came sixth out of 20 schools. Results are here: http://www.lsaa.org.uk/R2PHGS2017.htm
Our runners looked very smart in their new running vests courtesy of Friends of Farfield PTA and I was VERY proud of all of them. Thanks to parents for their support and to Mr Little for organising the team. For your reference, the next races in this league are on Saturday 13th January, and after school on Wednesday 14th March. It would be great to have more girls from Y3/4 and more older children generally. There are no trials: the more the merrier and anyone can join in!
I didn’t get many pictures as I was a bit late…
It was good to see lots of ‘old boys’ and ‘old girls’ running for Priesthorpe in the older age-group races. The outstanding school seemed to be Rawdon Littlemoor Primary, especially in the U11 girls race.
The video of the start of the U11 boys race gives you a flavour of the size of the event. Can you spot Dev from Y5?
