Eleven runners from Years 5 & 6 took part in a cross country event at Collett Park in Shepton Mallet.
Owing to transport difficulties, I am grateful to the organisers and attending parents for holding up the start of the girls race until our arrival. Thank you also to Mr Passmore for his support and, in particular, ensuring that all our runners had their numbers pinned by the time the bus arrived at Shepton Mallet.
Owing to this delay, our girl runners had to make a few hundred metres dash simply to get to the start line. I am proud of how Alice, Grace, Iris and Ruby took this in their stride (literally) and still put in a great effort in the race.
The boys' effort was great too. Particular congratulations to Jamie for achieving a top ten finish for the first time and Fergus as our other runner who improved on his position from the first race.
In this race, our girls team was third and our boys team was third also. Pretty impressive with over 20 schools taking part.
