Last Friday, 10th January, St Patrick’s Cross Country team took part in an event held at Falinge High School. It saw the children compete over a distance of 2km, on challenging terrain, against approximately 40 other pupils per age group from across the borough.

The team has been training consistently every Wednesday. In addition, they have also completed a Parkrun at Heaton Park, which was kindly sponsored by local business Moffat and Riley Heating Services, all of which helped the team achieve some fantastic placings amongst a very talented field.

The results were as follows:

Year 5 girls’ race: Sophia 4th place and Lilato 21st place.
Year 6 girls’ race: Mia 26th place.
Year 5 boys’ race: Conor 8th place.
Year 6 boys’ race: Harley 4th place and Keaton Scholes 8th place.
