Parkwood Springs Cross Country

On Saturday 19th October, WCM hosted the second cross country race of the season.  The weather just about held off for us and despite the recent heavy rain, the course also held up well! It was a resounding success and an amazing team effort from all those who came to help and support and our WCM runners.

Many people commented on the day about what a well organised event it was and what a ‘proper’ cross country course it was. Around 30 of our staff, families and friends were on site by 8am making sure everything was in place and clearing up afterwards. I think the area had less litter than when we started and certainly less ‘dog mess’ thanks to Mr Gill’s early morning removal exercise!!!

All the runners did themselves proud! They all finished and finished strongly, they supported each other and many achieved a PB with a top 10 finish for Megan in the Y4 girls race and top 5 finish for Lucien in the Y4 boys! 

Mrs Graham and her team also did a fine job selling drinks and food and raised between £150-200 for school.  It was also lovely to see Mrs Kingdon who was in Sheffield over the weekend and came along to cheer on and be our VIP marshal!

Thanks to everyone who was a part of the event and made it such a triumph!
