Cross Country News - Chiltern Edge Winter Series

A spirited group of Nettlebed runners turned out on Saturday morning for the third and final race in the Chiltern Edge winter series. It was a beautiful sunny morning although quite soggy underfoot due to the overnight rain.

There were some fine performances from our runners and they should all be very proud of themselves. We finished the mroning with a good haul of medals, some excellent team efforts and some fantastic 'overall in series' results.

It is a pleasure to see the enjoyment and enthusiasm shown by our runners at these occasions and also the great team spirit they demonstrate, cheering each other on and supporting the whole team. I am always impressed by their commitment and determination and this year several runners have been well rewarded for their perseverance. Congratulations to all runners (you are all amazing!), to the medal winners at each race and extra special congratulations go to the children who came away with 'overall in series' medals and golden trainers awards. To achieve these positions they have shown dedication and commitment across the series of races and have been well-placed in all of their races. Year 3 girls also secured a 2nd place overall team award.
