Essex Primary Schools Cross Country


The preliminary round of the Essex primary school cross country competition was held in Great Notley Country Park on Thursday, with two Braintree runners involved.

Running for Earls Colne Primary School, Luke Allen flew around the tough muddy course with 2 short steep hill sections.

He took the lead after first hill at the beginning of the race and just opened up the gap from then on, winning the Year 6 boys race by a good 50 metres.

Also from Earls Colne, Bethany Turner came second in the Year 6 Girls race, with a fine sprint finish in the last 100 metres.

Both Luke and Bethany have got through to the Essex County Primary Schools Final to be held in Southend in March.
