Not content with the inter-house cross country on the last day of term, some pupils can't get enough of the sport of Olympians! During the first week of the holidays, a group of committed runners joined the schools races at Newbury Showground.
Brockhurst and Marlston House runners joined close to one thousand boys and girls from state and independent primary schools across Berkshire took part in highly competitive races on 28 March.
Brockhurst and Marlston did not enter 'official' teams but nonetheless performed very commendably. In the Under 11 girls race Lottie was 10th out of over 300 girls. And of the 350 boys in the same age group, George was the first Brockhurst boy at 7th, with Freddie,Tom, Ollie and Tom (again) all finishing well within the top quarter of the large field. This is notable because, if they had entered as a school team, their combined score would have put them among the medal winners.
