Running success for the St. Bede Cross Country Team

Following their success at the Winchester and Eastleigh cross country trials before Christmas, Scarlett, Rebecca, Millie, Jacob and Jack were invited to take part in the Winchester and Eastleigh U13 & U14 Cross Country Championships in Eastleigh. It was a very exciting afternoon, Rebecca lead an enthusiastic warm up to prepare everyone for the races ahead. It was a lovely event and the children enjoyed seeing lots of past pupils and meeting up with people they have raced against in the past.


Eventually it was time for the girls to head to the muddy start line to race. A fantastic start saw all three girls in the top 10 and they continued to show strength and stamina throughout. Perseverance and courage paid off when in the final stretches the girls fought hard to gain a spot in the front running group. Excellent running all round saw Millie in 7th, Rebecca in 3rd and Scarlett in 1st place.


It was the boys turn next and Jacob and Jack were raring to go. Fighting their way through the line-up they had a great start and once again ran a superb race continuing to challenge each other along the way. Another fantastic race saw both boys in the top ten with Jack finishing 8th and Jacob finishing in 9th position. Well done everyone!
