What a week for running!!!!
This week our cross country runners entered 2 events. The WOKSSA festival at Cranbrook Rugby Club and the inaugural Run 4 Life event run by the Kent School Games team at Dunlornan Park. Both events were a huge success for us and also prove how much impact out Mile A day and Super Mile are having on our pupils.
We were very dominant at both events with top ten finishes in all the races that we entered.

A huge thank you to the many parents who brought along our 42 strong squad and delivered then back to school. Thank you too for walking the route with them and for helping out the organisers out by standing in strategic points on the route.
Thank you to Sarah Newton and Gemma Hughes for bringing me hot drinks!
