Five hundred pupils take part in cross-country

Monday, 14th October 2013.

Young people from across Haverhill and the surrounding villages gathered together on a windy Thursday afternoon, October 10, to take part in a cross-country competition.

Over 500 students from 14 primary and secondary schools gathered to complete the route around the Castle Manor Academy campus, bringing with them a host of supporters.

There were two routes, the shorter for students in year three to six was 1.5km in length and made its way around the lower portion of the vast campus.

The second route for students in year seven and up included a loop of the academy’s communications site, stretching a total of 2km.

Competitors were issued with race stickers as they arrived, which were used to provide electronic timing.

Sport leaders from Castle Manor Academy then led warm-up sessions before the start of each race category.

Competitors had a fantastic time as they made their way around the undulating course, battling wind and occasional rain before returning to the main field for a flat finish.

Refreshments for runners and spectators were provided by catering students and allowed everybody to stay warm while they cheered on the runners.

Winners in each category were:
Year three: girls Eve Daniels, Hundon Primary; no boy runners.
Year four: girls Lily Rose, Hundon Primary; boys Ryan Dunne, Hundon Primary.
Year five: girls Nicole Beasley, Kedington Primary Academy; boys Woody Marshal, Hundon Primary.
Year six: girls Isabella Coston, Ridgewell Primary School; boys Hayden Lawrance, Westfield Primary.
Year seven: girls Melody Bray, Castle Manor Academy; boys Alexander Murray, Samuel Ward Academy.
Year eight: girls Beth Harding, Castle Manor Academy; boys Jamie Culleton, Castle Manor Academy
Year nine girls: Lizzie Jackson, Samuel Ward Academy; boys Dan Cordwell, Samuel Ward Academy.
