This was the first cross country event for the Copelstone sports pyramid and Rushmere Hall took it by storm in our new kits. The events were as follows:
race 1 - girls year 3/4
race 2 - boys year 3/4
race 3 - girls year 5/6
race 4 - boys year 5/6
We just about managed to fit all of the races in before it got dark. Each runner ran 1.4km against 8 different schools! They had to make sure they kept warm ready for their races but when the whistle blew, they were off! We had a great start from the year 3/4 girls Sophie and Megan finishing in places 4th and 5th. Followed by solid run and great finishes from Theo and Johna (7th and 41st).
The year 5/6 continued the fast running with the girls giving the other schools great competition finishing in 2nd (Lana) 15th (Ashley) and 21st (Darcy). Finally the year 5/6 boys fighting hard all the way to the finish line with finishes of 3rd, 4th and 23rd (Sam, Sid and Leal). Overall the Rushmore Hall came 3rd in the year 5/6 competition! Great effort everybody!
It was a great event enjoyed by all. Thank you to all of the parents for taking children to the run and to Mr Massey for helping us out on the day.
