Each October St Andrew’s Senior School, hosts an International School Cross Country competition. This year was no exception with eleven schools joining together for an exciting and fiercely contested event. Four races took place involving :
Under 15 boys
Under 15 girls
Under 19 boys
Under 19 girls
Our coaches, Mr David Lipscomb and Mr Nick Martyn, are very keen long distance runners themselves, often seen training around the site and visiting Iten, the high altitude training centre. Their enthusiasm and professional approach has had a visibly positive impact on the Senior School students. Thanks to a lot of practice and expert coaching, our students were able to shine, achieving 3rd place in the Under 15 girls and 4th place in the other three races. St Andrew’s School, Turi was announced as the overall winner, retaining the shield again this year. Well done to all participants for a sterling performance.
