A fantastic run by Lexi, finishing in 3rd place, spurred them on With the weather unusually hot and summery for the start of the cross country season, schools in NE Hampshire met for the first race of the year at Court Moor Secondary School. to to all achieve good positions.
With up to 90 children competing in the boys' race, it was a cramped start and unfortunately, a shoe came off and resulted in Kai having to stop to put it back on again. Despite finding himself right at the back after 200m, he produced a brilliant run to finally finish in the first 25. Many of the boys were also running for the first time and should be pleased with their placings over the 900m distance.
