The event was organised by Mr Linton, Assistant Leader of PE and supported by the WELLACRE PE Department. Mr Duffy, Teacher of PE and our Yr13 students helped set up the course on the day and Mr Glover, Leader of PE collected and collected the runners results.

 

The Championship was open to all schools within Trafford, organised into 18 teams and with over 500 competitors taking part. WELLACRE had 3 teams of runners from Years 7, 8/9 and 10/11.

 

During the race Mr Linton and his team encouraged all participating students to strive for their best. WELLACRE boys worked exceptionally hard together, supporting each other to motivate achievement both as individuals and also as a team.

 

Upon finishing the race the first 8 runners to complete the course were selected to run for Trafford Schools in The Greater Manchester Schools Cross Country Championships with the next 4 runners selected as reserves.

 

WELLACRE would like to thank Mr Linton and his team for organising and supporting this inspiring and enjoyable event.

 

We would also like to congratulate all students and schools who took part for their hard work, effort and commitment both in training and during competition.
