We are extremely proud of Amy, Tom and Ben who took part in the Hampshire Cross Country Championships on Tuesday 7th March. The children were selected to represent Winchester and Eastleigh after competing in trials held in February. The event itself was at Down Grange in Basingstoke with the course being approximately 2000m over grass and track. After all the recent rain, conditions were very muddy!
All three children have all done so well just to qualify for such an event as the best runners from across Hampshire were taking part. Tom and Ben finished in the top 20 for the boys’ under 12 race. Tom finished an incredible 3rd place and Ben a fantastic 20th. Amy took part in the girls’ under 12 race and put in a fantastic performance showing great stamina. I’m sure we will see more of these runners in the future!
Well done everyone!
