Last week the Prep School boys and girls tackled the cross country course in a bid to earn points for their school houses. This year’s Inter-house Cross Country competition enjoyed perfect running conditions and resulted in a number of records being broken over both the one kilometer and three kilometer courses.
Digby Nightingale of Ruwe set a new record of 5 minutes 5 seconds over the one kilometer Under 7s course. Both the boys and girls Under 13 records were broken with Ryan Rubyogo of Kilimanjaro House setting a new time of 12 minutes 43 seconds for the boys. Sara Storey of Elgon House completed the course in 14 minutes 28 seconds to win the girls race.
At the end of the day, it was Kenya House who won the overall event, becoming the 2017 Inter-House Cross Country Champions. Below are the top three competitors in each race:
