St Petroc's Cross Country event was held last Friday afternoon. Just as it started to rain the sea blew a nippy breeze across the Downs. All the runners had to track their way through the dunes from Bude Cricket Club to the flag pole on the hill between Summerleaze and Crooklets.
From there, it was towards Sainsbury's and back towards the cricket club.
Our Years 3/4 - Kyle, Sam, Oliver, Jacob, Kelsey, Juliet, Scarlett, Eleanor, Alexi, Lacey, Harry, Ryan and Leon - ran one lap of the course; our Years 5/6 - Ollie, Luke, Alfred, William, Issy and Toby - ran two laps of the course! There were about 100 children in each race. All the children ran hard and well and had a really good go at tackling the course.
Except for Jacob, who came 8th, all the children crossed the finish-line between 30th and 100th.
Well done to all who took part and hope your free, post-race hot chocolate warmed you up!
