We began the course outside of school and ran alongside the creek, before re-entering the school and finishing at the end of the race track. Below is a map showing where we ran:

Miss Fraser had the task of starting each age group’s race because she had a megaphone. At the start line, we took some photos known as “selfies”

  4. Here’s a tip for cross country, don’t waste all your energy at the start of the race. You have to start off with a run then when you have gone about 150 metres start to do a jog.

  5. Dear Miss Fraser and others,
    I cannot wait to do cross country when I am in year 4 and when I do I hope I win or a least go to the second round.
    How hard is cross country
