Crosfields Cross-Country Festival

From the snow and ice of last Friday, to a beautiful sunny Spring afternoon just four days later, the British weather was very kind to our latest Primary Schools Sporting Festival. More than 480 runners from 22 local Primary Schools travelled to Crosfields to take part in a Cross Country event that gains in popularity year by year. It was also fantastic to welcome around 300 visiting parents, grandparents and friends who came along to watch the action!

There were four races (Year 3 Girls, Year 3 Boys, Year 4 Girls and Year 4 Boys) over an undulating 1,000m course that tested everyone to the limit. Medals were presented by Charlotte Bennett, Crosfields Deputy Head (Academic) to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed runners, and a Shield to the Winning Team in each of the races. But, this was another occasion when every child was a “winner” by showing a keen desire to take part both individually and as a part of their school team. Mrs Bennett  was 'overwhelmed by the determination of the children of all abilities conquering this challenging course, including some who were carrying a shoe that had come off in the mud!'.
