Another clean sweep for Wharflands at interhouse Steeplechase

Congratulations to Wharflands House, who swept the board at the annual interhouse Steeplechase for the second year running, winning the Junior, Inter and the Senior races.

The competition took place in the grounds at Oakham School in ‘Covid-safe’ House and year group bubbles. The distance of the Junior race was 3.2km and the Inter and Senior races were 4.8km.

Despite the cold and damp weather conditions, there were some excellent performances, fantastic teamwork as well as a strong sense of camaraderie .

Mr Tref Vandoros, Assistant Director of Sport, tells us more:-

“Poor weather always seems to bring the best out of the teams, so the conditions were ideal for teamwork and helping each other over the line. There was great support on the sideline, a massive effort in the field and a real positive reflection of House Spirit to the end.

Well done to our individual winning runners, but also to those who pushed them hard and created a competitive edge to the race. Above all, a huge well done to Wharflands House, who achieved another whitewash of wins.

Thanks must go to all the marshals and helpers that ensured a smooth and pleasant competition.”
