The first meet of the Cross Country season saw Westholme enter 28 runners at the Scarisbrick Invitational Cross Country.
A day tailor made for running, motivated athletes, what more could you ask for?
The U10 Girls set off first and a very fast start soon spread the pack out. Penny finished first for us, in 20th position, in a race in which we all learned a great deal about pacing ourselves.
The U10 Boys saw Henry finish in 6th position, followed by Joseph in 12th. Again, lessons about pacing ourselves were taught to our runners.
The U11 Girls started strongly, with Willa finishing 9th and Evie 17th. This was a highly competitive race and all did well to finish after a blistering start from the front runners dragged the following pack with them , far too fast for some.
The U11 Boys was an extremely fast race and Munashe did very well to finish in the top 20 at 15th. The boys ran well throughout.
