Isabel Qualifies For ISA Cross Country Nationals

26 Jan

On Wednesday 24 January, we took a team of Crackley’s fleetest cross-country runners to the ISA Midlands Qualifier at Bedstone College.

Facing fields of 150-180 runners, six pupils finished in the top 20 in their race and Junior 4 pupil, Isabel, came third earning herself a Bronze medal and a place at the ISA Nationals. Well done also to Junior 5’s Leo who finished 13th overall and was the best placed boy in the Year 5/6 race.

The course at Bedstone is notoriously challenging, taking real grit and determination to complete. It involves mud and stream crossings, along with other varied terrain that challenges the balance and stamina of the competitors. For many of the children, it was their first real exposure to any type of cross-country running. There were areas of the course that had mole hills, potholes and tree debris, making significant trip hazards. 

Commenting on the day, Director of Sport, Kat Vaughan, said, “As always, the children were exceptionally well behaved, a real credit to the school, and a pleasure to take to the competition. They were nervous but excited and ran courageously, I was very pleased with them all.”
