Mass Cross Country @ Shildon

cc7The Sedgefield SSP Cross- Country event was relocated to the Shildon Athletics track because of a water-logged course at The Oak Leaf Centre.

456 runners from 16 schools descended on the track for four races:
Year 3/4 girls 1200 metres
Year 3/4 boys 1200 metres
Year 5/6 girls 1600 metres
Year 5/6 boys 1600 metres

A huge crowd of parents and children roared the runners on after impressive mass starts and there was a really great atmosphere. ‘Hares’ – runners from Greenfield school led the runners around the track and some great races ensued with everyone trying really hard and with many great finishes with runners trying to steal extra places for their team.

Students from Greenfield and FBEC marshalled the course and organised the finish line really well – giving all the runners great encouragement.
