Ursuline Prep – National Cross Country Finals 2019

2nd April 2019

On Saturday 30th March, Miss Allen –Head of Girls PE escorted two year 4 (Upper 1) children from the Ursuline Preparatory School Brentwood to the ISA Cross Country Nationals held at Rugby School.

Rosie and Joseph successfully won a competition earlier in the year so they qualified to be part of the ISA East Anglia team for the race in Rugby.

The weather was glorious and there were plenty of spectators to cheer the children on.  Each child was running against approximately 70 children in their respective race.  Miss Allen said that both Rosie and Joseph ran the 1500m course extremely well; the race was very competitive and was run at a very quick pace. Miss Allen was thrilled with the results, Joseph came in 4th, and Rosie came 2nd. This was a very hard race and both children ran extremely well and really pushed themselves to achieve these fantastic places.

Mrs Wilson, Headmistress was delighted to hear the news of the success of these two talented runners.
