Cross Country Festival - February

Wickford Family Cross Country


On Thursday 28th February children from Hilltop, Runwell, Oakfield, Grange, Abacus, Wickford and North Crescent took part in the Wickford Family Cross Country Festival. This year the event was held a new venue, Wickford Primary School and once again the Year 3 and 4 competitors ran 1000m and Year 5 and 6 1500m around the school field grounds. It was a cold, wet and damp day but the children remained positive and full of enthusiasm!
