Well done to the Cross-Country team who took part in a running event in Norwich

On a mild winter’s day, eight pupils from Gresham’s cross-country team travelled to Mousehold Heath in Norwich to take part in a running event in a beautiful nature reserve among trees, sharp inclines, gorse bushes and a delightful pond. Dressed in black and in good spirits, the eight pupils lined up at the start and soon set off in style and with noticeable verve. Seb took the lead very quickly and remained at the front for the entire race, pushing his personal best without doubt (sadly no timings were provided). Sophia followed with a fine and consistent pace throughout. Darcey, Rose and Charlotte were next to complete the race, followed by Hattie and Honor who excited the spectators with a wonderful and very fast sprint finish. Paloma’s smile at the end showed just how much she loved taking part and the whole team congratulated each other before piling back into the minibus to return home. A fabulous event that was enjoyed by all. Well done, Team!
