Pupils from Year 7 & 8 recently journeyed to Rendcomb College for the much anticipated Rough Runner event. This is a 3km, hilly, multi-terrain

(sometimes muddy and always wet) race with 16 obstacles to negotiate along the way. Throughout the run pupils scaled bale pyramids, splashed through streams, whizzed down a giant water slide and much more besides whilst always supporting each other to ensure everyone made it round.

All four teams crossed the finish line wet and tired, and also united, happy and begging to do it again! Whilst the afternoon’s objective (to make sure all fours teams made it round) had already been achieved, the afternoon was topped off nicely when the results were revealed. Our Year 7 girls’ team came 2nd, our Year 8s were 3rd and whilst our Y8 boys were also 3rd our Year 7 boys stole the show with the quickest time of the day to win the boys’ title. 21 medals, a trophy and lots of fun!

Bring on Rough Runner 2019!
