Head of Outdoor Education and PE Teacher, Will Bower, said, “It was brilliant to be back at Bedstone the rough rural terrain making it one of our favourite cross country events. As usual there were lots of excellent performances and it was great to welcome some new runners to the team. We still haven’t had the team results confirmed but we had red vest after red vest crossing the line at the front of the field.”
Many congratulations to all who took part.
