Cross Country

The cross country race at Bridgend was much busier than the first race of the season in Fortrose.

Team Milton did themselves proud. Cross Country can be tough at times, especially when there so many runners!

The staff were all very proud of the runners today, everyone crossed the finish line with a smile and showed great determination after a very busy start line.

Our next race is in Dingwall on 4th December at 1.30.

At assembly last week we talked about Geraint Thomas.

  1. – Geraint Thomas entered his first Tour de France in 2007, where, out of 141 racers, he finished second to last. Many people might have been tempted to give up if that was their first race experience, but not Geraint – he was determined to persevere.
    – In 2013, Geraint finished the Tour de France, helping his teammate to first place while riding with a fractured pelvis.
    – Geraint has faced plenty of obstacles on his path to winning the Tour de France, including broken bones, knocks and falls, as well as enduring years of training.
    – Finally, in 2018, after more than ten years of trying, he won the Tour de France.
    – Geraint didn’t give up. His perseverance was enough to gain him the most prestigious prize in the cycling world.

A message to all of our cross country runners – Persevere. Every second that you take of your previous race time is a victory. It is not always about the placing – it’s about being your personal best and challenging yourself every time you run.

A positive attitude will lead to positive outcomes.
