Last Saturday, seven members of the cross-country squad made the long journey to Sevenoaks for the historic Knole Run. The 46th edition would once again feature 9.4kms of mud, cold and famous hills. The squad consisted of five experienced sixth form runners and two very promising fourth year athletes. In total we had four squad members running their debut Knole runs. Leading the team was a very impressive Will d’Arcy in 16th place. This is promising for the future as he still has three years of eligibility remaining. Captain Alex Pennington finished in 44th place, a valiant effort in his first race back after injury. Next were sixth form debutants Roy Schumacher in 81st and Tom Rolfe in 92nd running strong in the tough conditions. Packing well were Oliver Elly, fourth year Henry Channon and James Coode who rounded up a fantastic team effort. Despite coming home empty handed the team were proud of their effort. The whole cross-country squad is looking forward to future races this season, with the County Championship the next race on the calendar.
