Buckinghamshire Schools' Cross Country Championship, Wednesday 3 February
Gateway fielded two U11 teams in the Buckinghamshire Schools' Cross Country Championships at Hughenden Valley Park. The weather was cold. The children ran a 1.5 mile course taking on a gruelling hill climb at the halfway stage. There were 14 schools in the girls’ race with 110 runners and 12 schools in the boys race with 92 competitors. The team results were calculated by adding the times of the top four runners from each school.
On the whole, most runners were pleased with their performance, although Daisy S picked up a calf strain and did well just to complete the course. Well done to those that competed and we hope this experience helps prepare for the London North finals Tuesday 9 Feb.
