Due to Covid 19, large mass start events are impossible to facilitate. In the first inter-house challenge, it was expected that pupils run the “A-Block” route and then submit times and details online. If a pupil had not returned to school, they could run the equivalent distance of 3.26km. This was primarily a participation event and also a means for houses to rank their runners prior to the finals of the Cross Country season. In terms of overall participation for this event, the houses were ranked as follows:
The finals of the season were run on a new 5km course around campus. The competition was exciting and the attitude and approach of all runners positive. The course ran fast and an impressive 3 runners ran sub twenty minute races (including the Junior Cross Country Winner). All the boys who took part are to be congratulated and my sincere thanks to all the athletes, marshals and teachers who helped in making 2020 finals possible.
