Cross Country Results - 2018-2019

October 2018 - Twenty-four pupils ran around the grounds of Somerhill School on Friday for the first fixture of the season. There were great team performances and some excellent individual runs to celebrate. Emily H came seventh, Molly came fourth narrowly missing a medal and Sophie R ran an impressive race to take first place. A great event in beautiful surroundings, well done to all those that took part. 


May 2019 - An awesome performance by all our runners at Chiddingstone. Fordcombe finished the 5th team overall which, considering we did not have enough runners for any category bar one, was exceptional. 

An outstanding run from Sophie in the year 3/4 girls race - she came 1st!! Molly also did a brilliant run coming in 18th. Jessie and Oscar in year 3/4 boys raced so well together coming in 15 and 16 respectively. In the longer races - a whole extra lap - Emily, came in 7th, with Olivia not far behind in at 12th. And in year 5/6 boys, Oliver came in 12th and Ted 21st.

Well done Fordcombe!
