Priory Park Cross Country Relay Event

On Thursday 23rd May, a group of Year 5 and Year 6 children went to Priory Park to take part in a cross-country relay event.  The event consisted of a Year 6 race and a separate Year 5 race.  There were four children in each team and they each had to run 1200m around the park and then hand the baton on to the next runner.  There were over 55 teams entered into each race so there were a lot of children at the event making the atmosphere electric. 


Our Year 5 teams were first to run and they all ran brilliantly.  The children couldn’t have given any more and ran their hearts out.  One of our teams finished fourth overall with a time of 16 minutes and 57 seconds.  This team finished in a sprint for the line against The Park with The Park nudging ahead but the times were exactly the same. It was very exciting! The other team finished 10th with a time of 17 minutes and 39 seconds so both teams were very close together with not a lot between them. 


Year 6 ran next and again the effort they put into their run was incredible.  They were so determined right to the finish line.  One of our teams finished 5th with a time of 16 minutes and 5 seconds with the other team finishing 11th with a time of 16 minutes and 27 seconds.  It was a joy to watch their determination and resilience as they ran the course. 


All the runners were excellent and, what was most impressive, was their support for each other with many of the children running the route alongside their team mates to encourage them.  It was such a great event and lovey to be there alongside The Park too.  Wilf certainly enjoyed being the team mascot. 

Thank you to all the children for representing the school brilliantly and thank you to all the parents/carers who helped transport and support the children.
