Cross Country Competition

30th November 2022

Here are the super-talented children who took part in this week’s Cross Country Event, which saw some spectacular running at Wimpole Hall Estate from schools from across South Cambridgeshire. Conditions could not have been better for the 900+ runners that took part in the event, the temperature was perfect and the event was enjoyed by all with great sporting spirit.
There were 8 races on the day with a separate boys and girls race for Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 with the first three finishers in each race receiving a medal and certificate. In the team competition, the top three placed runners from each school scored for their team with a separate Year 3 & 4 and Year 5 & 6 team competition.
As a small school racing in this big school event, Meldreth's Year 5 & 6 Team came 5th out of the 20 schools competing and our Year 3 & 4 Team placed 16th.
A huge WELL DONE to all our eager competitors!
