A warm September afternoon saw a squad of 11 Year 5 & 6 cross country runners take on over 15 schools from Ashford and the wider area in the lovely surroundings of Godinton House.

Our brilliant racers were; Jack, Henry, Oakley, Lewis, William, Katie, Isla, Olivia, Lucy, Elyssa and Jessica.

Some of our more experienced runners have taken on this course before, but for many, this was their first time running over hilly grassland and dodging cow pats, branches and other outdoor obstacles!

The Year 5 boys put in a splendid performance with Henry unlucky to lose out on a medal position, whilst the girls ran a really tight race with all finishing well up the field.

Lucy and Olivia represented Year 6 girls and both put in fine personal performances. Lucy finished mid way in a large field and Olivia ran a fantastic race finishing second overall, having led for much of it.

A special “Well Done” to all the parents and brothers and sisters who made for such an exciting afternoon and cheered on the efforts of Team John Wesley!
