Thanet Primary Schools' Cross Country (amended)


The second round of this season's Thanet Primary Schools' Cross Country  series took place on Saturday 28th January 2012.  On a morning described as "freezing" by more than one seasoned veteran, 754 children in school years 3 to 6 took part in the eight-race programme in Hartsdown Park, Margate. 

Amongst them were seventeen members of Thanet Roadrunners AC, who produced some impressive statistics between them.  Hughie Coleman and Alex Kavanagh won the Year 5 and Year 6 boys' races respectively, (following up their Round 1 victories at Newington), whilst a further four club members took silver or bronze medals.  No less than ten TRAC juniors finished in the top 10 in these ultra-competitive events, a remarkable tally considering the average of almost 100 runners per race.

TRAC members who competed, along with their finishing positions and race times were as follows:

Year 4 Girls (1000m)

2nd Kacey Lawlor  4:09 

3rd Maddie Stirk  4:20

Year 5 Boys (1500m)

1st Hughie Coleman  5:24

7th Finley Tait  6:02

8th Jon Hart 6:06

9th Oliver Davies  6:08

10th William Jennings  6:10

23rd Gabriel Ellis-Jarman  6:30

71st Sam Gerlack 8:30

Year 5 Girls (1500m)

2nd Beth Williams  5:56

3rd Rebecca Hales  6:07

12th Hannah Prentis 7:08

15th Piper Mullins  7:20

28th Tia-Rose Smith 7:40

46th Claudia Lay  9:01

Year 6 Boys (1500m)

1st Alex Kavanagh  5:22

57th Harvey Brown  8:01

The third (and final) leg of this annual series takes place on Saturday 17th March 2012 at Palm Bay School.  If your child has not yet taken part, you may still enter them for the final race.  There will be an entry fee of £2 and the closing date for entries is Thursday 2nd March 2012. 

As the children represent their schools in this competition, entries are usually made by the PE teachers at each primary school taking part.  If you are not sure who to contact, however, speak to one of the coaches at your child's next training session.
