Well done to all of our runners for their amazing efforts in their races. It is very clear to see that hard work pays off with Fielding giving strong performances in every race! Unfortunately, we didn't retain our Boys trophy which we won last year.
As our runner ran consistently well in both the boys and the girls races it means that in the overall rankings Fielding finished....1st!! (joint with Mount Carmel)
So Fielding are joint Cross Country Overall winners for 2016!!
Today we attended the annual Ealing Schools Cross Country competition at Berkeley Fields. All of our cross country runners have been training very hard this half term and were all eager to get to the race and test themselves against some of the best runners in the area. We had 18 runners competing in 4 different races and each of them raced superbly today. The official results will not be released until next week so check back to find out times and to see which school is crowned cross country champions this year. We had 1 podium finish today in the Year 6 boys race from Rory as he crossed the line in 3rd so congratulations to him. There were also some other very good finishes but we will have to wait until next week for the results to be released. In the meantime, enjoy some pictures of our hard working runners.
We can now confirm that the boys squad have finished as the top team in Ealing Cross country beating 32 other schools to first place.
We have also found out that the girls squad finished better than we first thought by finishing 10th out of 32 schools.
Great effort all round guys. Cross country shield is on its way back to Fielding!!

The boys were brilliant as well and their collective effort currently puts Fielding in 1st place out of 32 schools.
The results from the second race and overall results are due next week.
The second of 2 cross country fixtures today and Fielding were feeling good. Another good run from the boys and girls squads and there was still chance of bringing a trophy back home. The girls were off first again and again everybody ran a great race. Josie ran another fantastic race and finished in the top 10. Eve had a strong race as well and is making big improvements with every run. Official placings for today's race will be released to us next week so fingers crossed for some good news.
Thankfully the boys race went off without any issues today with all of them getting away well. Jack B had a point to prove after falling last week and ran the race of his life which ended with a burst of speed down the home straight. Excellent run from Oliver K today who finished 2nd in the group to bring back an individual silver medal. The rest of the boys also improved on last weeks run with the highlight of the rest being a 4th place finish for Maxi. Again we need to wait for official confirmation of results but its looking good for the boys squad bringing home a trophy.
The event organiser has said full results will be published next week so all we can do now is wait....and get ready for cross country club in the morning!!
Well done again guys!
Today was the first of 2 races for our squad of cross country runners at Berkeley Field. The girls were due to race first so the 6 Fielding girls got ready, waited for the whistle and went. It was a great start from everybody with everyone away cleanly. After a long 1500m it was Josie B to cross the line first from the Fielding squad in a pack of runners at the front of the race. The other girls in the squad also finished the race comfortably all having run very well.
Next up was the boys race which had a less from straightforward start. First there was a false start which led to over 100 boys sprinting the first 100 meters before being turned around back to the start. Ready to go again, this time waiting for the whistle and the 14 Fielding boys were off. After a lot of commotion at the line this time, unfortunately Jack B took a fall and felt a few feet running across his back. Bravely he got to his feet and begun his race. The boys squad ran a fantastic race with Oliver K and Maxi S finishing 4th and 5th out of 100+ boys. The rest of the top 20 or so finishers also seemed to be made up of a lot of royal blue Fielding tops so a great race. Just over half way around the course and the pain of Jack B's earlier fall was starting to catch up with him. However, he made to it to the home straight where he was greeted by the rest of the Fielding squad who all ran with him along the home straight so they could cross the line again as a team! Great show of unity to emphasise the importance of this months value of the month.
We need to wait for official confirmation of all of our places from the event organisers which we should hopefully get in the next few days. After that we will wait until next Thursday, same time, same place to see if we will be bringing home a cross country shield for the second year running.
