450 pupils from the following schools took part;

  • Little Melton Primary
  • Cringleford Primary School

The event followed our Compete event theme and aimed to “provide opportunities for children that are competitive in nature and enjoy performing and competing against others”.

All the results have now been shared with the each school and the top 10 from each race will be invited to the Norfolk School Games Cross Country Finals on Wednesday 22nd November at High Lodge in Thetford.
