Our biggest run yet; Clayesmore’s Annual Cross-Country Race

The biggest field on record took part in this week’s annual Inter-House Cross-Country Competition, over a distance of 4.25km around the Clayesmore campus and adjoining farmland. The weather was kind, the fields not too muddy, and bags of spirit, grit and determination were displayed as pupils competed for house and individual glory. Once all competitors had returned, the points were tallied, and the prizes were awarded by the Head. The biggest and shiniest award went to the house with the highest participating percentage of pupils and was awarded to Gate (with a fantastic 90% of their boys completing the course). Full race results follow:
