Kingscourt Runners Take On Clanfield Challenge

Kingscourt Runners take on Clanfield Challenge

Runners of all ages from Kingscourt School took part in the second year of the popular event, the Clanfield Challenge last weekend.

The Challenge comprises runs of 1K, 2K, 5K and 12K lengths running over a variety of terrains in village of Clanfield and surrounding areas.

Kingscourt turned out runners from Reception upwards and even had staff support in the shape of Mr Tom Allen who completed the 12K run in just over an hour.

Y6 pupil, Ollie Bembridge was delighted to cross the finishing line first in the 2K run.

Headteacher Jamie Lewis said, “A lot of staff and parents went along to support and cheer home the Kingscourt runners. Clanfield is our near neighbour so we were very keen to get involved.  Children here at Kingscourt are very much encouraged to develop a healthy lifestyle which was very much reflected in their willingness to take part in this event.”
