We took a team of 42 eager runners from Years 5 and 6 to Waterhall for this year’s cross country event, a 2km run over muddy, hilly fields, in chilly conditions. More than 350 children take part in each race, and the start is a sight to behold. Every one of the St Luke’s children completed the course, and all of our teams did well. George H finished an amazing 9th in the Y6 boys race (and now goes on to represent Brighton and Hove in the County Finals) while Izzy finished 16th in the Y6 girls race. Well done to all our runners, and many thanks to our superb support team of adults (Tanushka, Chris, Anna and Vic) who did a great job.
