We were delighted to be invited by Leweston School to take part in their virtual cross country races.
Leweston normally holds an annual cross country relay event on their grounds with schools throughout Somerset taking part.
They creatively offered a COVID safe alternative this year. Each school set out a 2.4 kilometre course on their own premises to enable their runners to take part safely and remotely from other schools. We had boys and girls teams for both Years 7 and 8. Our Year 7 and Year 8 races took place on different days for bubbling purposes.
Whilst is currently too early to know how we fared against other competing schools, the winning runners from each team were:
Year 7 boys - Oscar
Year 7 girls - Freya
Year 8 boys - Charlie
Year 8 girls - Emmie
A fantastic effort from all our runners. Oscar, Charlie and Lewis all clocked in with times close to 10:00 minutes.
Above all, it was wonderful to be taking part in a competitive sporting event again.
Thank you also to the helpers from 7RA for the Year 7 races and from 8DJ for the Year 8 races.
