Maidstone Schools Cross Country Championships
On Friday, 17 November this year’s Cross County Championship took place in Mote Park on a lovely dry sunny day. The Year 7 race was the first of the day and we had a strong team entered. They ran over a course of 2000m finishing with a difficult uphill climb. All of our team finished in the top 25 from a field of 60 runners with Lily and Amy finishing first and second overall. The team was placed first, 30 points clear of the rest of the schools. The Inters were next to run (Year 10 and 11), they competed over a 4km race and were also overall winners with runners placing 1st , 2nd, 3rd, and 5th. An amazing result for Charlotte, Millie, Lara and Hannah. Finally, the Juniors set off over a distance of 3km in a race of 65 runners. All of team placed in the top 20 with Invicta claiming 1st and 2nd place yet again (Izzy and Megan) and winners overall.
A great result for all of our runners, many of whom will now be selected to represent the district at the Kent competition early next year. We shall look forward to seeing how they get on.
