Another hectic, atmospheric Cross Country event saw over 300 students from northern area schools race, taking our Cross Country participants for the week close to the 700 mark!
The competition saw competitiors, staff and supporters from 16 schools descend on Alfreton Park for four races across two age groups with every student giving their all for their team!
Races for Y3/4 and Y5/6 for both girls and boys were staged with over 80 runners in each across two different courses, Y3/4's running 850m and Y5/6 completing a 1200m course
Students were then given their placing at the finish, these were added together with other runners from their school to produce a team score with each race being totalled to populate an overall standings list
Individual prizes were also on offer for the top 3 runners in each race, it was incredible to see the sheer determination amongst the athletes and the talent on show in Amber Valley!
Congratulations to everyone who took part!
