Twelve schools competed in this Year 5 and 6 combined team event. The children braved sub- zero conditions at Hughenden Valley, competing over a tough 1500m circuit, crossing twice through a freezing stream.
The team events are calculated by adding together the first four runners’ times. Medals are also awarded to the top three runners in each age group.
Year 5/6 Girls (97 runners)
Esme Y 17th (8.42), Daisy S 25th (8.55), Skye M 26th (8.58), Sophie A 30th ( 9.01), Georgia M 36th (9.16), Jessica M 37th (9.23), 40th Jessica C (9.30), 44th Helen N (9.33), 52nd Roisin G (9.44), 61st Isabella J (9.52), 65th Chantel O (10.00), 79th Maddi S (10.31).
The Y5/6 girls were 4th in this event.
