Polwhele House Cross Country 2019: Primary School Winners

Twenty-eight children competed in this brilliant annual event, held at Polwhele House School. Despite the recent unsettled weather, the course conditions were good. The top section of the course was windy but firm underfoot, as usual the lower sections of the course were extremely muddy.

Congratulations to all of our runners, who coped extremely well with this hilly woodland course, in particular with ‘garlic hill,’ which is a testing climb for any runner. We were delighted to win the trophy for the best Primary School.

Boys: 3rd =James H (Y3), 9th= Felix B (Y4), 14th= Maddox, 20th= Christian (Y4)

St Petroc’s Cross Country

In beautiful sunshine, on Friday 22nd March, Truro Prep competed in St. Petroc’s annual cross-country competition. Setting off from Bude Cricket Club, and then heading around the cliff tops at Bude, the course offered a range of terrain to test even the most competent of runners.

With around 300 competitors involved in the event, there was good competition for all runners. Felix Beresford picked up 2nd place in the U9 Boys with Lucy Darling and Lilly Leigh taking first and second place respectively in the U9 Girls. All the competitors raced with determination and passion, and should be proud of the places they achieved in what was a very challenging, yet enjoyable course.
