This annual cross country event took place on Monday 21st March at the Royal Hospital School, Holbrook. The team has been training weekly by running along the pavements close to Springfield, which has included running up the hill in Valley Road three times in a row, in preparation for the hill in the second part of the RHS course!
The team were fantastic and a credit to the school. Every team member completed the course, running alongside children from over 40 other schools. A great achievement. Well done to you all!
