Kirkham Grammar Junior School entered all four teams in this year’s championships. The conditions were good underfoot but very windy. As always, Rossall organised a very good event and, as a school, we appreciate the time and effort put in by all their staff. Preparation for this year’s event has not been ideal as much of our training has had to take place on the astro as our field has been very wet due to the poor weather conditions for most of September. However, all athletes have worked really hard in training which has taken place at lunchtimes on a Monday and Wednesday. Over 20 schools took part with more than 120 competitors in each race. Every pupil selected ran well and gave it their all.
