Primary cross country festival

Year 5 and 6 primary athletes raced through muddy conditions at the Newquay Tretherras Cross country festival on Thursday 16th January 2014.

The 3rd race event in the season saw Newquay primary schools in the Newquay Learning partnership compete, all adding to their total points scouring the NTSport primary cross country league.

Once again, Year 6 runner Bradley Mclennan, form Goonhavern had a strong race and led well to finish first.

Enthusiastic Newquay Tretherras Sports leaders not only marshaled the course but also ran along side some younger athletes who required a little extra support due to the heavy running terrain.

Mr. John Scott who co-ordinates the primary cross-country festival said, ‘The first race of the New Year is always a tough one but the enthusiasm of the Newquay Tretherrassupport Leaders, once again made the event fun for everyone. Our local primary schools continue to show us fantastic support and attend every primary event with their fantastic young athletes.’
