On Thursday 10th October, fourteen children took part in the annual Cross Country event organised by Abberley Hall School. Despite the inclement weather, our resilient children showed true Winterfold spirit and ran with guts and determination to the very end. Our top placed finisher was Isaac B-G, who finished in an excellent 8th place in the U11 Boys’ race. He was closely followed by Tom L (11th), Matthew H (12th) and Guy M (33rd).
These fantastic results enabled the Boys’ team to finish in an excellent 4th place overall. In the U11 Girls race, our top placed girl was Poppy J who was 20th and she was joined by Maiyla DN (21st) Abby W (22nd) and Frankie B (39th). In the U13 Boys’ race, our first runner home was Tom A (30th), followed by Oliver S (42nd), Archie S (48th) and Charlie M (49th). We only had two runners this year in the U13 Girls’ race. They were Kasey N (37th) and Emma W (56th), who ran with her asthma inhaler in her hand and despite needing to use it on the way round, still managed to finish with her smile on her face. Well done to all of you!
