Cross Country - Hurstpierpoint College

Cross Country

January 20 saw the Year 5-8 Cross Country event at Great Walstead with roughly 350 pupils from 11 schools participating. Despite the weather being cold and the ground being frozen or very muddy, it was a great event. We had 24 students participate from Hurst with 12 U11s and 12 U13s. Unfortunately, there were no individual medals in any of the four races but consistent performances from all students placed Hurst 3rd overall.

A great show of camaraderie and immense effort from all our runners helped us to secure third place, despite no ‘stand out’ medal-winning performances. True Hurst Spirit! Ben Dewey, Head of Prep School Boys Sport
