Calderdale XC Championship fun at Spring Hall, Halifax


Hundreds of excited pupils from primary school all over Calderdale ran their hearts out for their schools, in a highly competitive XC event. HX7 schools sports partnership had representatives from Riverside, Old Town, Burnley Rd, Heptonstall and Scout Rd. Runners finishing in the top 5 automatically went through to the West Yorkshire Games, along with the top 5 teams [of 4] in each year group.

We are still awaiting team results, but Joseph Hobbs in Riverside’s Y5 had a fantastic run, securing 4th place and a trip to the West Yorkshire Games on Weds 25 March at Leeds Becket University. Eilo Beesley in Y6 ran an excellent race coming 7th in a tough field. Well done everyone.
