Cross Country Report

On Thursday 17th November, a team of twenty four children from Leckhampton Primary School entered the Cheltenham District Primary Schools Cross-Country competition.  The event was held at St Edward`s Junior School on a beautiful sunny day – very unusual weather for a cross country meeting!

All the children raced extremely well and for some it was their first experience of a cross country race.

The boys` race had 185 participants and the first three boys to cross the finish line from Leckhampton were Edgar Gaze in 43rd place, Sami Horwood in 33rd place and Oliver Beaney in 21st place.

The girls` race had 149 participants and the first three Leckhampton girls to finish were Louisa Holland in 22nd place, Anna Maddocks in 21st place and Olivia Rook in an incredible FIRST place!

What a fantastic result!  Very well done to all those who took part!

Now for some serious winter training before the next race in the new year……….
