On Friday 5th May I took almost 40 children to compete in The Orchard Run at Sutton Valence Prep School. Conditions were excellent for running with a mixture of sunshine and showers. All our runners competed exceptionally well with special mention to Bella B for coming third, Poppy for coming third, Lily for coming second and Luke for coming first in their respective races. We also had a very good smattering of top 10 places with many coming just outside the medals in 4th and 5th.
Our year 3 and 4 runners won their year group outright and our years 5 and 6 were second in theirs.
Overall, after 3 years of coming second we won the Orchard Run. Huge congratulations to Monty, Henry O, Noah, Gus, Charlie A, Eva, Emily D, Savvy, Tula, Isaac, Rafferty, James, Louis, Leon, Bella B, Lola, Sienna, Anais, Violet, Matty, Cayden, Luke, Cole, Lily, Violet, Emilia, Daniela, Anna, Tommy, Anthony, Boris, Oli L, Jack L, Poppy, Gemma, Lola and Evie.
A HUGE THANKS to Kev Draper for walking the course with the team and for helping me all afternoon. Thank you too to all the parents for arranging transport and supporting all our children.
