It is finally time for our much awaited our Year 5 and 6 Cross Country competition for 2017. Next Tuesday 29 August, we will be starting and finishing our races outside the rugby league clubrooms on Pururi Drive, and I know your children would love you to come along and cheer them on, if possible.
Each race will consist of two laps of 1000m around a course that will be set up on the rugby grounds. I have attached a map of the planned course for your convenience.
We are planning for the first race to start soon after 1pm.
From then the race order will be:
- Year 5 Girls (approx 1:15pm start)
- Year 5 Boys (approx 1:40pm start)
- Year 6 Girls (approx 2:05pm start)
- Year 6 Boys (approx 2:30pm start)
The top seven from each race will go on to represent our school at the Remuera Zone Cross Country Championships which will be held on Tuesday 19th September at St Kentigern College in Pakuranga.
In order to successfully run this event we will need some extra help, so if you are able to help could you please email me at the address below.
If our plans need to change on the day due to the weather we will make sure we keep you informed via alerts on your app and on the Webpage.
