EAL Cross Country - Round 3 (Ipswich)

In the third race of four as part of the East Anglian League, Ipswich School hosted over 40 runners in the Fynn Valley from Gresham’s, Norwich and RHS, in addition to 9 OIs who raced against our senior boys; given the home fixture, it was fantastic to field our largest team of the series, with 22 runners from years 7 to 12.

In the Junior boys race over 3.3 km, a large team of boys ran superbly, coming second to Norwich by just one point. In the Girls’ race, again over 3.3km, the team dominated, with Darcy Gladwell coming first despite competing in a biathlon in the morning - the team were outright winners against much older competition.

In the inter boys race over approx 5.5 km, the team faced tough competition but secured their first win of the series thanks to the depth of talent building in the inter boys team, narrowly beating RHS to take first place in the team competition.

In the senior boys’ race over 8 km, Ollie Hitchcock dominated both the senior boys and the OIs, running a superb race in just over 27 minutes and helping the team to secure second place, again only narrowly beaten by Norwich School.

Finally in the OI versus the School race, the OIs won with a suberb run from Richard Elston (OI 2004-11) who came first in 28 minutes, followed by Thomas Hancock (OI 1981-88) running in 31 minutes.
