Cross Country - Boys' School

August 19, 2014 at 3:26 PM

In a show of grit and endurance, the Year 4-8 boys were put through their long distance paces at the annual Cross Country held at the College last week.

Joining with students from the Girls’ School, the boys gathered on the banks outside Bruce House in front of the starting line along with their parents and friends.

The day was chilly and windy but that did not deter the boys who were rearing to go. The Year 4-6 boys got off to an early start, all running two legs of the one kilometre soggy track taped out across the fields. The Year 7 and 8 boys then stepped it up a notch and pushed themselves hard for their three kilometre and mud spattered run.

The show of support from their fellow students was encouraging for all runners who were keen to earn valuable house points in this much anticipated event.

This year the finish line flags again sat at the top of a short steep hill alongside Bruce House, so a final burst of energy and determination was needed to carry them over the finish line.

Congratulations to the following students on their placings. The top Year 5, 6, 7 and 8 runners will now go on to represent Saint Kentigern in the Remuera Zones competition.
