The next Upton Cross Country takes place on Saturday 22nd June....
On Saturday 22nd June Upton are running the Upton Cross-Country event for children as part of our ‘Sport in the Community’ programme. The event is in its sixth year and is very similar to the Thanet Cross-Country at Quex. We invite all local schools and races all 1km long to ensure no-one is put off by the distance. All runners receive medals regardless of where they finish and the ethos is focused on getting involved. It’s a lovely event to be part of, especially as it is at our own school and so just down the road from you.
There is an entry fee that covers the cost of medals and event organisation of £2 per pupil, which needs to be returned to school by Monday 10th June with the completed form below. While staff will be on site to help with organisation, all pupils need to be accompanied by a parent/carer who will be responsible for them on the day.
Within the school we are trying to get as many children as possible to enter and ‘have a go’ in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere
Hot and cold refreshments will be on sale as well as a bouncy castle on site. Extra medals will be awarded to runners who finish first, second or third in each race.
On the morning of Saturday 22nd June races start at the following times:
9.00am - Fun infants race (300m) for siblings of entered pupils (Pay £2 entry on the day only – medals for all)
9.20 – Year 3 Girls 9.40 – Year 3 Boys
