Oxfordshire School Games Cross Country

2nd April 2019

Oxfordshire School Games Cross Country:

After a superb performance in the West Oxfordshire event, The Blake School Year 4 Boys Cross Country Team qualified for the County Finals.

The event was held on Tuesday 2nd April at Tilsley Park in Abingdon in very wet conditions.

After walking parts of the course to familiarise themselves, the eight strong team of boys lined up for the start.

The course was varied, along paths, fields and wooded areas.  All the boys ran brilliantly, demonstrating great effort and determination, and as a team we managed to finish in 5th place out of the 15 primary schools in Oxfordshire that had qualified for the final.  This is a fantastic achievement, and despite being very wet and cold the boys all seemed to enjoy themselves.  We are very proud of them all.
