Area Cross Country competition at Rocks Park School  Uckfield

On a bright Wednesday afternoon, 125 pupils from local primary schools took part in the Uckfield Primary Schools Cross Country held at Rocks Park.

The standard was very high, with 25 teams taking part over the 2 races.

The 2019 Champions are Girls –

Lucy Lai from Rocks Park and Boys.

Teddy Collins from Manor.

This years winning teams were Rocks Park in the girls event and Little Horsted in the boys event.

Congratulations to the top 16 runners from both races, who now qualify to present Uckfield at the North Wealden Championships later this month. We wish them the very best of luck.

A huge thank you must also be given to the marshalls from Year 7 and Year 8 at Uckfield College, Miss Sansom from Brighton University, and Rocks Park for hosting the event.

Race organiser, Sarah Levett, said “It is great to see so many children from so many schools taking part. I hope that some of these runners might now be tempted to take up Parkrun.”
