Warlingham Park Cross Country – Monday 22nd February 2016

On Monday 22nd February a team of 11 runners went to the 25th Cross Country Competition at Warlingham Park School. The event was very well supported with 10 other local schools. The course was very wet and muddy and had to be changed so the runners just ran on the field and not in the woods.

The first to go were the girls and they all ran off at a very fast pace; after a complicated zig zag across the field the first runner came home. Rose B was the first runner for Oakhyrst and she came in a respectable 11th followed by Sophie H, Erin L, Eleanor D and Isabella P.

The boys were next and Conrad N shot off from the start keen to establish a clear lead. He went on to win the race very comfortably over the rest of the field. Samuel G, who was running 2 years out of age, came in an incredible 8th followed by Kieran B, Jasper P and Thomas B.

The final placings were announced and our girls team finished 5th and the boys 4th.

Well done to everyone.

Mrs P Pumphrey, Head of Sport
