NORFOLK SCHOOL GAMES CROSS COUNTRY FINALS

Wednesday 4th March

Day 7 of the 2020 Norfolk School Games Winter Finals took place at Holkham Hall. The final day of the Winter Games schedule saw 640 young runners, from over 150 schools, come together to take part in the Norfolk School Games cross country finals.

Each of the participants had qualified to represent their local School Sports Partnership (SSP) by taking part in a prior qualifying competition. Each SSP team included 80 runners made up of 10 boys and 10 girls from each of the year groups 3, 4, 5, and 6.

Despite the wet and windy conditions we have seen recently, the sun put his hat on and brightened up the day. With perfect running conditions, everyone was in high spirits.

Pupils were given the chance to walk the courses prior to the first race to familiarise themselves with the route.

Each of the races were extremely exciting with runners setting off at an energetic pace. Runners were cheered on by lots of spectators, who had come to watch the top young runners in the county compete.

The young runners completed the following distances;

  • Year 3 (boys & girls) – 1000m • Year 4 (boys & girls) – 1200m • Year 5 (boys & girls) – 1400m • Year 6 (boys & girls) – 1600m
