Pupils enjoy cross country with a difference

October 12, 2021

Children from 20 different schools took part in the annual Guernsey Athletics X Challenge event yesterday (Monday).  The event, also known as ‘cross country with a difference’ due to the unique course, saw over 500 students taking part this year. Participants from school years 5 to 10 tackled a spectator friendly course full of twists and turns as well as obstacles such as logs, car tyres, hay bales and even a net crawl to negotiate. The emphasis was on a team based event with separate races held for Years 5 & 6 combined as well as Years 7 & 8 and Years 9 & 10 respectively and for both girls and boys.  

Full results are available to download on the Guernsey Athletics website, and include both individual and team results. Note team scores are based on finish position e.g. 1st place scores 1 point and 2nd place 2 points and so on. The aim is to score the lowest possible total from your top 4 finishers in each race.  

Chris George was also on hand to take team photos and race action shots and are available to all to download here
