GGS – North of Scotland X-Country Results

GGS had 10 pupils out today competing in the North of Scotland Cross Country Championships at Gordonstoun School. We started the day with a gentle walk around the course to familiarise ourselves with the route, before a team warm-up to raise the team spirit. All pupils showed fantastic stamina and resilience, even in the intense competitive environment. While the pupils weren’t competing they showed great support for their teammates by cheering them on as they ran past. Rachel in S1 said about the race that ‘the sprints at the final push were so hard, the only thing I could think of was to overtake the person in front’. See individual events below.
