The runners chosen for the first of this season's Cheltenham Primary Schools' Cross Country League ran with strength and determination. The true Airthrie spirit was displayed by every member of the three teams that completed the 1.25 mile course.
Our Year 6 girls were the highest scorers with Georgie making up several places on the home straight to finish in 17th position and Arabella running strongly, finishing 28th.
The Year 5 and Under team was headed by Jemima, finishing in an extremely creditable 34th position, as she too sprinted down the home straight. Ruby and Nicole ran with an even pace for the 2 laps and finished in the 67th and 69th positions.
Next were the two Year 3 girls, Henrietta and Lydia, who ran amazingly well to finish in 73rd and 83rd place, respectively.
The final race was for the Year 5 and Under boys, with Benjamin, Year 4, finishing in 55th position and Will (Year 5) in 78th.
We are very proud of the performance by all runners on the Newlands Park course for Race 1, 2018/19.
