Oakham School Steeplechase

300 boys competed in Oakham's annual inter-house steeplechase with Haywoods House victorious overall, winning both the Junior and Senior races.  The boys from Barrow won the Inters race.

The distance of the Junior race was 3.5km, whilst the Inter and Senior races were both a longer 5.2km distance.  There were some excellent individual performances throughout the afternoon.  Those boys not taking part in the race, or marshalling the course, lined up along the home stretch to cheer the competitors home.

Assistant Director of Sport-Boys, Mr Trefon Vandoros said, “It was perfect weather for the competition and the boys’ limits were stretched. The more experienced runners pushed themselves right to the finish and those that found the course more difficult showed resilience to make it to the end and cross the finish line. I am very proud of all the efforts by the competitors and it was fantastic seeing House spirit out in full force.”
