Cross Country Qualifiers - 17/01/24

It was a cold Wednesday night in Angmering and many Year 5 & 6 EPJS children tried their fortunes in a Cross Country Area Final qualification event.

Staff leading the event decided to get started sharply due to concerns about the cold. Off the line and it was immediately evident that the runners from EPJS were definitely in contention for qualification. 

For perspective, a usual Angmering Mile is a mere lap of the field. However, due to the treacherous terrain at Windlesham (location of finals) a decision was made to extend this to an exhausting 3 laps. No bother for the children as all maintained a consistent pace and looked determined to finish strongly. 

In the end, the following teams qualified:

- Year 5 Boys

- Year 6 Girls 

- Year 6 Boys 

As well as these, individual runners from Year 5 qualified. 

A quick turn around now - looking ahead to the final this coming Friday (26th Jan). Hopefully similar results for this brilliant bunch!
