Following achieving third place at the Essex Schools Cross Country at Writtle in January, Elle, Year 11, was selected by Essex County Schools Athletics Association to represent them at the South East Country Schools Cross Country Championships at Reigate Priory Park on Saturday 5th February, 2022.
A total of 103 runners participated in the Intermediate Girls Category over a tough 4.1 km course through parkland and woods on a very windy day.
After a mad hustle and bustle start, Elle was eventually able to find her pace and found herself about 35th place after the first half of the race. The second half was a stronger pace for Elle, who was very pleased to come home in 4th place, with only 14 seconds separating 1st and 4th spot!
