Waihi Cross Country

29th June 2018

The Waihi Cross Country was held on the afternoon of Friday 2nd June.

The boys ran a similar course to last year but this year we had no running down Harrison Road, instead we used a large portion of the orchard to the north of Waihi. The course was 2.8km for the juniors and 3.35km for the senior boys, and included woodland running,  three river crossings, running through a number of fields both firm footing and boggy, and the usual two hay bale jumps.

The boys described it as a ‘real cross country course’.

Friday was sunny but cold and the rivers were even colder after the recent rains, all the boys took part and all enjoyed the course … and the barbeque sausages afterwards.

All the spectators who attended saw some fantastic finishes to the races with all the boys having the energy to sprint to the finish.  These were fiercely contested between the houses, with Everiss coming out narrow but deserved winners.

A big thanks must again go to ‘The Friends of Waihi’ who ran the annual Farmers Market, organised the barbeque, feed the boys and spectators and put in a lot of work behind the scenes.
