Chantry Cross-Country Relay Champions
On Tuesday 7th March some of our Chantry children attended the Year 5 and 6 Cross-Country Relay event at Stockwood Park. We had 4 runners in each team and each athlete had to complete 1 lap of the park which is approximately 1200m (that’s 3 laps of our ‘10 a Day’ pathway). We were very fortunate with good weather, having blue skies and very little wind.
We arrived at 4.00pm to register and as we got all our numbers pinned on, the team nerves built up. All runners studied the route map before warming up with a few minutes to go.
The runners completed their lap one at a time with a tag changeover and the spare runners did a fantastic job of supporting each other, especially on the final 100m of the laps. Every runner tried their absolute hardest to keep the pace up throughout their lap, determined to hold Chantry’s position in the race.
15 teams took part in the Year 5 category and 18 teams took part in the Year 6 category, Mr Best and I were very proud and pleased when both Chantry teams came second. Each runner won a fantastic medal for their dedication and commitment to succeed. A tremendous effort by each athlete competing, they really stepped up to the challenge having faith in their ability to achieve.
