Pupils who have been working hard at cross country club all term had the chance to compete today in a race which would earn points for their constellation. Each constellation was represented in the race but in the interests of fairness the race began in a handicap style with teams starting their race at different times. In order to win the race, teams had to complete 4 laps of the field and did not finish the race until every member of their team had crossed the line. This led to some great teamwork, with some of the stronger runners really encouraging the rest of their team. It was a great race and actually ended up with the winning team crossing the line together!
Cross country champions in 2015/16 are....
Orion came 2nd, Cygnus 3rd, Hercules 4th.
Well done everyone. See you next year
