Surrey Cross Country


On Saturday Morning 19 children represented Cardinal Newman at the Surrey Schools AA Cross-Country Championships in Reigate. The children from Years 4, 5 and 6 ran distances ranging from 1.8- 2.2 km through Priory Park which involved an area of the forest. As the snow fell onto the frost covered grass the children battled to complete the testing course. All of our children conquered the course and we are incredibly proud of them. A particular note of congratulation should go to Finn Canning (10th in the Year 5 race) and Jack Gemmell (8th in the Year 6 race) which is a tremendous achievement and means they have been invited to train with the Surrey County Squad.
