Children from Blackpool X-Country Club entered a local Tournament at Stover School, over 20 schools brought teams to compete in this popular event. The weather was great for long distance running, with a cool breeze and no rain. Blackpool School entered 12 children from Year 5 and 6 to compete across the open terrain in a bid to secure a good overall score for the team.
The competition was tough as around 100 runners competed in both the girls and boys events, all Blackpool children placed under 50th - which put the team in a strong position for the overall point score.
South Brent and Bradley Barton had great medal success, but Blackpool placed 2nd overall in the Seniors competition.
A great team effort which was reflected in the final points score. Well done to all those who took part and contributed to a great team score!
