Angmering Mile Race
Girls Team 3rd (out of 6) Boys Team 3rd (out of 6)
On an overcast and windy evening 31 runners from EPJS lined up alongside their locality rivals in the first event of a busy sporting calendar. With nearly 150 participants, all bursting with excitement, it made for a real buzz around the playing fields of The Angmering School.
The race started frenetically and the field was soon stretched out with some of the more experienced Year 6 athletes setting a strong pace. EP took a selection of children from across the year groups and it was lovely to see a large contingent from Year 3 and lots of children representing the school for the first time. This was certainly a challenging course in challenging conditions and will stand the athletes in good stead for future races.
Both the boys and the girls teams finished third out of six schools. A special mention to Matilda who finished 2nd overall and continues her good form from last year. A big thank you and well done to all who took part and for parents for transporting the athletes.
