East Preston Junior School

Angmering Mile - November

The recent weather contributed to heavy conditions underfoot at the second Angmering mile of the year, making finishing the course a huge achievement in itself.

Over 40 runners represented EP in a bumper field of 170 athletes from the locality. There were again many new faces sporting the royal blue of EP representing the school for the first time.

Running Captain, Matilda, led the team in a group warm-up and then excelled in the race - again picking up an impressive second place overall.  She was ably supported by the rest of the girls’ team who achieved the bronze medal position, coming in third overall.

The boys team fared just as well and, following on from their bronze medal position last time went one better - coming in second overall!

A huge well done to all of the athletes that took part today - you are a credit to our school and we look forward to sharing your success in assembly.

Thanks also to parents and carers for all of your support. We look forward to seeing you at the next Angmering Mile in February and the Year 5/6 team cross country event in January.

Hannah of 4D wrote her own review of the event:

On Tuesday 5th November 2019 around 40 people from EPJS went to the Angmering Mile . It was hard, but we enjoyed it. I came 39th place and my friend Daisy came 38th. For some of us like the Year 3's it was out first time. If you take part in the Angmering Mile race you should feel proud, even if you came last because all that matters is that you had a go! After the race we sat down and had a drink and calmed down. Mr Gwynn then told us the results - the girls came third and the boys came second. I had fun. I was so proud of myself. Thank you Mr Coates. After the race we all had aching legs from running so far - which I had never done before.
