Beechwood Park Cross-Country Event
On Friday 24th January, Beechwood Park School hosted their second annual cross-country event, welcoming approximately 390 runners from 18 local schools. Schools were invited to bring their top six runners to compete in U9, U11 and U13 races in the boys’ and girls’ events.
The competitors enjoyed running through the Beechwood Park fields and woodland and were cheered on by an enthusiastic crowd of supporters. The competition was strong, with up to 15 teams taking part in each of the U11 races. The honours were shared with Aldwickbury winning the U13 boys’ race, Queenswood the U13 girls’, Heath Mount the U11 boys’, Berkhamsted U11 girls’, Heath Mount U9 boys’ and Beechwood Park triumphing in the U9 girls’ race.
In the team event Beechwood finished 3rd in the U13 boys’, 2nd (by 1 point!) in the U11 boys’ and 2nd in the U11 girls’ race. The highlight of the day was the U9A girls’ winning gold in the team event - by 11 points!
A massive well done to all of the runners from all of the schools who took part and competed so eagerly in the cold weather and to our two Beechwood Park medallists, Eddie who won silver in the U13 boys’ race and Eloise who won gold in the U9 girls’ race.
Special mentions for finishing in the top 10 go to:- Anna (4th), Violet (7th), Martha (8th), Elliot (7th), Cameron (8th), Carlotta (4th), Josie (8th), Arthur (10th).
We look forward to welcoming everyone back again next year.
