Go! Shouted the announcer and with dozens of feet pounding the floor as a plethora of eager children fought for a good start to the race at West Ham Park. Southern Road Primary children once again made themselves and their teachers proud with an outstanding performance from 30 children in years 4, 5 and 6. Being able to run quickly is only part of the process; these children had to run quickly for an unbelievable two kilometres (2KM) without stopping.
All the children involved put in every effort to finish in the fastest time possible and pushed themselves harder than ever before.
Lots of tired faces and sweaty shirts helped cement Southern Road’s contribution to the cross country event. Well done boys and girls!
