Another successful Exmoor Challenge
This year saw the perfect weather conditions for the 16 mile course, a crisp cool morning for the first long uphill leg and onward to Tarr Steps. The four groups representing King’s Hall were excited as they waited to be called for their start times. First off were the two mixed teams, followed by the all-girls group and finally the all-boys group as sweepers, team 111 in the running order. All four teams had completed the route by 4.45pm, tired legs, sore feet but elated. The scores in the overall competition are as follows: The boys team (Will, Tommy, George and Cameron) came 11= in their pool; the girls (Lottie, Jemima, Maggie and Jenna) came 14th in their pool; and in the mixed teams, King’s Hall 1 (Will, Andrew, Cordie and Eve) came 12th whilst King’s Hall 2 (Lizzie, Lucy, Russell and Max) came 2nd . A great set of results!
My thanks to Mrs Hayden-Briffett who helped throughout the training and on the event, to all the children who were great sports, and the parents for coming along to support.
