Students race hard

More than 270 students gave it their all in the combined schools’ cross-country.

Over 270 students from primary schools around Cambridge gathered at Karapiro’s Mighty River Domain recently for a combined schools’ cross-country.

The event on Friday, September 14, organised by Goodwood School with the support of Project Energise and Sport Waikato, saw 8 – 9-year olds cover a 1880m track, and 10 – 11-year olds take on an undulating 2080m track.

“So impressed with the grit and determination shown by all runners, with exhilaration and exhaustion on faces, crossing the finish line,” said Chris Garland, event coordinator from Goodwood School.
