Sheffield Schools Cross Country Running

posted 14 Mar 2020, 08:14 by Richard France

We’ve had a fantastic season of cross country running with Dore Primary School being represented in all the different categories.  The children have not been put off by the bad weather and have showed great resilience throughout. There are too many names to mention; but we need to say a big thanks to all the children who have turned up during the season to represent Dore Primary School.  Each of you have helped gain points for Dore Primary in the league. We are still waiting to find out the final position for Dore Primary School!

The last individual race was at the end of February, which was The Sheffield Championship Race at Graves Park. The conditions were tough with it being so cold and muddy. Luckily, our children managed to keep their shoes on their feet, unlike some other children where they got stuck in the mud!  Considering the large number of children that ran in each race (hundreds were there) all the Dore Primary children did really well and we are really proud of them all.

This picture shows THE WINNER of the SHEFFIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS! Great stuff!  We also had lots of Y3,4, and Y6 boys in the top 100 for their age groups.

We have got the final of the Sheffield Schools Cross-Country Running season on Saturday 21st March (meet at 9.30am) for a 10am start at Castle Dyke (Birkdale School Sports Field) off Ringinglow Road.  Look out for the Dore Primary School flag.

This is a team relay race not an individual race, so we need names beforehand please. They will be running in teams of 4.  It’s running around a large field so parents get a good view of them running; and I gather it’s not quite as far as a usual cross-country race.

·         Year 3/ 4:  Boys event and a Girls event

·         Year 5/6: Boys event and a Girls event

If anyone is interested in giving this a go please contact Helen Taylor (school mum): 07969516031

Many thanks on behalf of the school to the parents who regularly support at this event, especially Jacqui and Helen, without whom there would be no Team Dore!
