Six pupils from Truro School represented Cornwall in the 2015 South West Inter-County Cross Country Championships at Bicton College on 4 January. They were competing against Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire and Avon.
There were fantastic performances from Harris who came 2nd in the Under 13 boys race and Finn who came 3rd in the Under 15 boys race despite being a year young in his age group. Both now have a good chance of being selected to represent SW England at the Virgin Mini London Marathon in April.
Elliot ran really well to be placed 8th in the Under 13 boys race and there were also very good performances by Benjy (26th in the Under 13 boys), Alex (27th in the Under 15 boys), and Freya (32nd in the Under 13 girls). These students along with Harris and Finn, helped their respective Cornwall teams achieve great results (1st in the Under 13 and Under 15 Cornwall boys and 2nd in the Under 13 Cornwall girls). Like Finn, Alex and Benjy did particularly well given that they were competing a year young in their age groups.
This all bodes well for the Truro School teams at the forthcoming Cornwall Schools Cross Country Championships later in January.
