Fourth in international inter-school running championship
There was a fantastic effort from pupils, parents and staff representing Claires Court to come fourth in a lockdown international inter-school running championship (photograph from past sports events).
What a fantastic effort by everyone.
Claires Court was fourth out of 32 entries from across the globe in the international inter-school 3K running challenge, narrowly missing out on a virtual podium position. We were fourth in both categories of total points and total number of entries, which shows a great speed, enthusiasm and participation.
There are notable results for:
Year 8 Boys - Claires Court Senior Boys won the team event, with their three highest-placed athletes. Congratulations to William Dart (2nd), Hugo Winter (3rd) and Will Slater (4th).
Year 11 to 13 Boys - Senior Boys and Sixth Form had the most entries from a school, most overall points from a school and were winners of the team event for the three highest-placed athletes. Particular congratulations to James Palmer (1st), Sam Mead (3rd) and Olly Spence (7th). Winner of the individual event is James Palmer by one second with a time of 9.47 minutes.
Well done and thank you everyone who took part.
