Well done to all the dedicated members of St.Ronan’s Cross Country Club who have been training every Monday and Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoons since September. The club held its annual Jingle Mile Race where they were joined by the fifth class Marathon Kids runners. One hundred and seventeen children completed the mile race in great time wearing Santa hats and with Christmas music to cheer them on. Congratulations to Justin and Veronica the fastest children in 3rd class, Mullumbe and April the fastest in 4th, Seun and Hannah the fastest in 5th and Dubem and Eman the fastest in 6th. See the attached table for the top 10 finishers.
Fifty children were selected from the school's cross country running squad to compete in the SDCC final of 2019 school's cross country running series. The children all competed to the best of their ability with strong persistence and stamina on display. Three members of our squad qualified for the champions race having finished first at previous race days. Competition was high and they ran with great talent on the day. Behaviour on the day was exemplary and we are very proud of our squad.
