Sport report: Cross Country

Two Russell House Form 6 pupils travelled up to Worksop for the ISA National Cross Country Championships 2024.

I went up to registration and picked up my red bib, representing London South and we then had a cold wait before we watched the Year 5/6 Girls' race. She did incredibly well and came 39th out of 60. Next, it was my turn. I was feeling nervous, but my family reassured me that nerves were good. At the start of the Year 5/6 Boys' race, I was last out of my pen. This meant that I had to work harder. It wasn’t until a few hours later that we saw on the website that I had come 53rd out of 64 runners, with a time of 8 minutes and 48 seconds to run 2km. It was a tiring weekend, but my family and school are very proud of me.
