Cross Country “Get Out and Run”

The second race of the local “Get Out and Run” Winter trail running series took place on Sunday the 1st of August at Mosslands Farm just outside of Makhanda. Run on parts of the “Two Rivers Trail”, it was a wonderful return to competition after the last extended lockdown.  Two St. Andrew’s boys and at least four members of staff represented St. Andrew’s College in the five, twelve and twenty kilometre races.  All of our participants acquitted themselves well on technical, mostly single-track routes.

Notable performances include: Jayden Ngugi winning the 5km race in a time of 26 minutes 38 seconds and Jacob Erasmus placing a pleasing fourth in the 12km race with a time of 1 hour 11 minutes and 37 seconds.

Well done to all those who participated. This series has been one of the more impressive events to emerge in the local area over the last year and our support of it has been appreciated.

The next race takes place on a date still to be decided on the intimidated course around Craig Doone. All boys who are interested in taking part in this race are urged to contact Mr. Orsmond directly.
