Andy Reading Fun Run 2018
On a very pleasant, if a little breezy, afternoon on Sunday 9th December, 25 determined competitors from Reception to Year 6 turned out to compete in the annual 1 kilometre Andy Reading Fun Run at the Bicester Sports Association playing fields in Chesterton. It was very impressive to see so many pupils from Chesterton (approximately half the entries) competing against many athletics club runners. We had a number of top 10 finishers, with Jessie Ward (3rd), Isabelle Goddard (7th), Honour Woodrow (8th) and Olivia Morgan-Griffin (9th) continuing their good form in the girls' race. Jack Martin (8th) produced a very strong run from start to finish in the boys' race; closely followed by Lewis Smith (9th) and Finlay Haynes (11th), who beat a number of older athletes. We were very excited to find out that we had won the trophy for best primary school – the third time in the past four years!
Congratulations to all our pupils and a special mention to our two intrepid runners from Maple Class, Edward Messum and Edith Haynes. Let’s hope we’ll be back next year to defend our trophy with even more runners!
I’d also like to thank our dedicated team of School Association volunteers who organised the refreshments stall to raise much needed funds for the school.
