Putney wins the English Schools Cross Country Cup.

Achievements, News, Senior School, Sports

The Junior XC team battled past 183 runners on a muddy and challenging course in Bolton to take the honours.

Year 7’s Alex Brown went on to win the overall event – a fantastic achievement particularly as she was running against girls a year older and was probably the smallest runner in the competition!

The victory brings to an end a competition which started with 300 schools in September. After winning the Surrey round, Putney went on to win the South East England round in Kent to qualify for the national competition in Bolton.

Congratulations to Alex, Tatiana Cooke, Olivia Gibson, Hannah Jusu- Sheriff, Maddie Shaw and Yasmin Howe.
