Once again the Inter-House Cross Country Championships brought together all the spirit of Abingdon Prep as a school. Staff lined up to run with the children, encourage as marshals and congratulate at the finish. DJ Armstrong pumped out the rhythm for the Pre-Prep lifting a few runners, just when they may have felt a little jaded. The photographs have captured the event brilliantly as everyone, regardless of ability, tried their best in pursuit of a chocolate biscuit at the end and of course the satisfaction of completing the course without being swept up by the staff ‘broom wagon’.

The races were hotly contested in each of the age groups and a long standing school record was ‘smashed’ by Henry in the Under 13 race by a staggering 49 seconds!
