Coventry Schools Cross Country Running Championship.

Standard

On Saturday, Seif, Subaan and Kheiser, from Year 6, stood at the start line of the Boys A race after having had a quick walk over the boggy course.

35 other schools from over the city had teams of 6 boys lined up ready to race.

As the hooter sounded off shot all the teams over the soggy ground.

After running the mile over fields and a ditch the boys ran home.

Mud splattered, the boys enjoyed a banana and a much deserved drink.

We may not have won the race but all the boys represented the school well, and I was delighted to take such a friendly happy team to the championship. In February we do it all again, this time with a girls team!
