Cross Country Report
38 children from years 3-6 grabbed their trainers and took part in the Cross Country Race - the first Primary Sports fixture of the year at Chailey School.
There were four races over the afternoon. The year 3/4 girls and boys raced one lap of the course (roughly 1km) chasing the speedy Chailey pace makers. Mia in Foxes took second place in her race - an amazing achievement for a year 3 in her first race with 3 other girls placing in the top 20. The year 3/4 boys took 6 of the first 12 places in a sea of green T-shirts across the line!
The year 5/6 races were twice the length and for some the heat got too much…others embraced the course. Jack and Eddie in year 6 finished second and third respectively and Isabelle, also in year 6, finished fourth. They all qualify to represent the Chailey area at a second round race later this year.
Congratulations to all our runners - regardless of where you finished be proud that you took part and in doing so lapped everyone on the sofa!
