In May, our Y5/6s warmed up with the Victoria Park mile race. Pupils who just wanted to give it a go, as well as more serious runners, participated.
Out of 50 runners Larkfield took second place in the Y5 girls' race with Paige & Lillie finishing 9th and 10th respectively and the rest of the girls in the top 30. Reuben was our only Y5 boy to run but finished in an impressive 12th (again out of over 50 runners)
The team spirit displayed was phenominal with runners cheering others on even after they had raced. It was a great atmosphere all round. For more pictures and individual positions with times, see the Southport Waterloo Athletics Club webpage
The next day, our Y3-6 runners jostled for position at Stanley High and came 4th overall! Alannah won gold by coming first in her Y4 girls race and we also had Michael finish 2nd with others finishing in the top ten of their races out of 50+ runners each race. Another great achievement.
Remember, the Daily mile is on every lunchtime the weather permits and is the perfect training to improve times, stamina and score participation points.
