Shropshire Cross Country

On Saturday 16th March, children from Tibberton and St Lawrence schools took part in the Shropshire Athletics Cross Country competition at Concord College near Acton Burnell.

Over 40 children from the federation took part, and we were all so proud of their amazing efforts, resilience and perseverance. The conditions were very muddy, and some children even finished the race carrying a shoe that had come off in the mud!

It was heart-warming to see children cheering each other on, and running back to support those who were maybe struggling with the run more that others. Amazing teamwork and camaraderie. Thank you as well to the parents and other adults who cheered the children on- we definitely had the best supporters there!

The children ran in 5 categories- Year 5 girls, Year 5 boys, Year 6 girls, Year 6 boys and a Year 3 & 4 mixed fun run. Overall, the Year 6 girls came 2nd, Year 5 boys 4th, Year 6 girls 4th and Year 6 boys 2nd. These were all amazing achievements given that we were up against runners from athletics clubs across Shropshire.

Well done again to everyone who took part, and a big thank you to everyone who came along to the event.
