On Tuesday Strand took part in the Hounslow Cross country event at Heathlands School. It was a bright, if rather blustery, afternoon as our runners warmed up amongst the other competitors. The Relay events were first on the racecard and our 600m boys (Dom, Josh and Peter) did very well to finish a credible 6th out of 25 teams. Josh realised that he had set off too quickly for his leg and was struggling to keep going but still managed to hand over to Peter for the final leg ! The girls (Georgia, Evie and Cleo) came an impressive 4th in their 600m race where all 3 ran tactically brilliant legs, keeping a bit of energy in store for the sprints to hand-over and finish. Next were the shorter 300m relays. The boys here (Mackenzie, Harris and Jenom) did well to finish 7th and were (briefly) in the lead as Mackenzie came flying out at the start like a bullet for the first 100m! The girls 300m (Jasmine, Anisa and Amber) were sitting in about 20th place at the final handover but Amber powered her way past 11 girls on her lap to finish 9th! Well done to all involved!
