Cross Country

Last night, we had our first cross country race of the season.  This season the courses have been lengthened slightly to try and stretch the children’s long distance running ability.  The children have been training on a Tuesday evening at school with Miss Atkins and Mrs Evans come rain or shine! A group of children from Years 4, 5 and 6 travelled to Beacon Primary School to compete in the 1 mile race. 

Out of nearly 70 girls Grace in Year 6 finished the race in first place! Well done Grace – Keep it up! 

The boys race was very tough, well done to Matthew in Year 5 who was our first finishing boy in 45th place out of over 80 boys. 

All of the children did amazingly! We are so very proud of you. Well done to Grace, Madiha, Rene, Abigail, Luke, Charlie, Dominic, Lucas, Riley, Matthew and Jack.

  1. What a fantastic achievement! You have all worked so hard on improving your techniques over the last few months. Who would have guessed….adults are right when they say ‘hardwork pays off!’

    Keep it up Team Rushall.

    I’m looking forward to hearing about further successes in this sport.
