CROSS COUNTRY 2019
The Woking Area Primary Schools Cross Country takes place each March. There are 3 events; the year 3/4 short run of approximately 1km, the year 5/6 run of just over 1 mile and then the relay where runners in teams of 5 each run the shorter 3/4 course.
15 schools enter these events, approximately 100 runners in each of the individual events and 4 teams of 5 from each school in the relay. They take place in Goldsworth Park.
St Lawrence is a small school so we often ask younger pupils to run out of their age group. We are lucky to have such enthusiastic runners who want to take part.
This year we achieved our best ever placing. We came 5th out of all the schools taking part!
Our 3/4 team was made up of Harper (4th), Albert (5th),Eva (16th), Evie (20th), Tilly (31st),Alfie (33rd)Darcy (37th), Katherine(49th), Bea(50th), Layton Jay (61st)
Our 5/6 team was Owen (12th, Daisy M (15th), Albert (22nd), Harper (35th)Summer,(42nd), Will (43rd), Cameron (45) , Matthew (60th), Cayden (64th) Roisie (53rd), Rose (59th),Lauren (70th), Daisy C (81)
Our relay teams were selected from years 3-6. Most other schools had some team made up solely of Year 6 so we knew it would be a very strong field. Our children ran fast times and competed with enthusiasm and great team spirit. Our first team home was 14th, despite one of them falling en route. Each child set themselves a personal challenge of overtaking at least one person and all of them achieved this goal- some even overtook 5 or 6 and in one case 16 other runners. It was a great afternoon, supported as usual by parents, siblings, staff and friends.
