Well done to Lower 1 pupil Lottie who finished an outstanding 2nd place at the Leicester City and County Championships last weekend.
Assistant Director of Sport, Mr Trefon Vandoros, said, “A huge well done to Lottie. The conditions were far from pleasant, and Lottie showed tremendous strength to perform so well.”
The English National Cross Country Championships on 22 February also saw four athletes from Oakham (Flo, Peter, Ewan and Rori) represent their Counties (Leicestershire and Lincolnshire).
Trefon tells us more:-
“In each race there can be up to 500 competitors. This year the conditions were to the extreme and a set of skis would have been preferential! All runners were exceptional with hundreds crossing the line at the same time, finishing within 3 minutes of the top runner.”
Next weekend there is the Inter Counties Cross Country Competition at Prestwold and our runners Flo (Leics), Harry (Leics), Ewan and Rori (Lincs) and Peter (Lincs) will be competing. Oakham will also be holding its own cross country event at nearby Rutland Water.
