On Saturday 24th November, 50 athletes (year 5 and 6) from 24 North Somerset Primary Schools, came together to represent TEAM North Somerset at the inter-area cross country championships at Ashton Park School.
Four age/gender races took place, with TEAM North Somerset competing against teams from South Bristol, North Bristol, Central Bristol and South Gloucestershire. The TEAM North Somerset athletes performed admirably, tackling a challenging course with determination. It was pleasing to see the true team spirit shown by all the North Somerset athletes and how despite attending different schools, they united as one team, wearing their TEAM North Somerset race shirts with pride.
We were delighted that all four age gender teams ran superbly to claim second place in all of the team competitions and it was wonderful to see two North Somerset athletes gain individual medals in an extremely competitive field. All athletes should be rightly proud of their achievements in representing their schools and TEAM North Somerset at this event and each athlete deserved their participation medal for their personal effort on the day.
