Christ College were delighted to host the first Brecon cluster cross-country league fixture of the season attracting junior children from 5 schools in the area.
A huge well done to the 264 runners who ran today. This is the largest number of runners we have had in the 8-year history of this event. A fantastic start for the season!
St Nicholas House pupils gave it their all, with every child completing the course. Some notable successes and top ten finishers were Harry Ling (10th) with Jacob coming in 5th out of 39 runners. Ella stormed in to come 6th out of 32 runners. In Y6, Neel and Oliver came 4th and 5th out of 40 others and challenged each other right up until the finish.
In fine form were Molly and Darcy who came 7th and 8th out of 29 runners.
We were delighted to see such a super display of determination and support for each other. It looks like the Daily K is really paying off! We were so proud of all the children today. As always, a big thank you to Satu, event organiser, Gareth for course-setting and to Charlie for help with marshalling.
Thank you also to Christ College staff and pupils for their help with officiating and taking the course down at the end. A very big thank you to all the parents and friends who supported this event – the atmosphere was uplifting!
