The junior school risked losing their footwear in a bog as they took part in the cross country run at Terrington Hall.

The length of races varied from one mile for years three and four, to three miles for Years seven to eight.

Sarah Rominiyi from Year five said: “It was so hard to run through boggy hills that half of the people lost their shoes in the bog and were running in socks.

“Their mums must have been very angry at them.

“At the finish line, everyone was out of breath but very proud that they could go home and tell their parents they had completed the race.”

A fantastic job was done by Luca Park, Connie Bradwell-Moore and Rueben Mason.

“After the run the students were rewarded with some hot juice and biscuits (though some people had too many of them).

Sarah summed up her experience with the words: “Running is hard.

“Don’t try this at home.”
