Cross Country at Brooke Priory – Friday 1st October 2021

Thirty one runners from Years 4 5 and 6 took on the challenge of the Brooke Priory race at Rutland Water on a sunny Friday afternoon. Over distances between 1.4 and 2.2 km the course stretches across the grassy banks of the reservoir dam. With eight schools attending the competition would be strong. It is impossible to mention all runners individually, but I know that everyone from Copthill ran with skill, determination and great personal effort, and upon completing the challenging course (all uphill on the way home!) they were delighted by their achievements and enjoyed supporting the other runners with typically enthusiastic cheering! When the races were over we sat to eat a well earned picnic tea, followed by the presentations for the top 6 runners and the top 3 teams in each race. Well done to all the runners who took part, Mrs Bell and I were immensely proud of you all, but particular mention to those featuring in the role of honour below!
