School games by Grace Cook
This summer I qualified for a place in the North of England Laser Run team for the School Games Finals.
The School Games Finals were held at Loughborough University and included sports such as hockey, cricket, cycling, netball and, for the first time, Laser Run.
In Laser Run you start a race with a short run to the range. Then you have to shoot and once you get five green lights you can run your lap before shooting again.
Our team of 20 travelled together with our coaches, arriving on Thursday afternoon.
We did our individual racing on Friday. I finished in ninth place, gaining a personal best five minutes, 27 seconds.
Later that night we had a huge outdoor celebration concert and I got to meet Dame Katherine Grainger, Britain’s most successful female Olympic rower.
If you get a chance to try Laser Run then go for it.
