Mixed age cross-country.

Last night's event - held at Cresswell - attracted some great runners from across the cluster and was well attended by supporters.  The event was well organised and a demanding track was clearly laid out for the runners.



During the evening there were some gritty performances from the children here and, in the final event of the night, all our runners cheered home Corey as he came in winner of the year 5/6 boys race.  Thanks to the teamwork and support provided by Leo, Dylan and Leon the boys team has won through to the cross-country finals next week - watch this space...



Well done to all the runners, especially Dylan who won the silver medal in the year 3/4 boys race.  You were all brilliant on the night and were a credit to Whitwell!
