8 children took part in the second fixture of the Cheltenham schools cross country held at St Edwards Prep School. The 2 lap course includes a long hill.
In the Y5 boys and under, Morgan finished first from Airthrie. Rayyan from year 4 and Zachary from Y3 ran their very first cross country race and found the distance tough but persevered and we’re able to push the pace for the finish.
In the Y5 girls’ race Clara was our only runner and again in her first competitive race completed the tough course with a smile.
We had 4 girls who competed in the Y6. Henrietta finished first for Airthrie, feeling much fitter this week, she improved her finishing position from last week’s race. Next to finish with a fast sprint on the home straight was Millie, followed by Lydia who completed the course despite feeling lots of pain from her sprain and lastly finishing with a smile was Malaika.
