Orchard School Bristol

Cross country runners shine at city trials

Athletes compete against best in the city

Our cross country runners have been challenging themselves against Bristol’s best in recent weeks.

We took Year 7 boys and Year 8 girls teams to Ashton Park for the Bristol Schools Trials. After weeks of training after school, our runners were really keen to race, many of them taking part in their first ever competitive race. It was a perfect afternoon for cross country in the excellent setting at Ashton Court, watching balloons go up at the same time!

The Year 7 boys gave their all against lots of experienced club runners and thoroughly enjoyed it, despite none of them qualifying. The more experienced Year 8 girls ran excellently racing against Year 9 girls too, with Charlotte finishing 11th and narrowly missing out on top 10 qualifiers and Chloe also running brilliantly, finishing 21st.

Well done to all our athletes!
