Cross country and fun run competition

On Wednesday 7th October the year 2 and 3 children took part in a fun run at Tupton Hall and the year 4, 5 and 6 children took part in the cross country competition.

All together over 300 children were at the event with 26 coming from Stretton Handley! Our best ever turn out! The cross country course was very muddy and nearly 2 miles long! The fun run course was also very muddy and nearly 1 mile long!

Cross Country and Fun Run

All the children did very well and completed the course and had fun doing so (including the odd bit of mud and conker collecting!).

Overall 11 schools entered the competition and Stretton Handley came 9th. Individually in the Y456 event, TM came 27th out of all 89 girls and MB came 31st out of all 99 boys. In the fun run event, LR and LH were the first two children back for Stretton Handley.

Well done and congratulations to all that took part!
