SSP Cross Country 2017

With good overall conditions and nothing but blue skies this years cross county proved to be as popular as ever, with an amazing 92 children taking part. Overall 29 of our primary schools had students competing in the race which is truly outstanding.


All 92 runners should be extremely proud of their efforts in reaching the SSP finals and for their performances on the day. It was fantastic to see so many talented runners competing for the top spots as well as getting to watch lots of the School Games Values being demonstrated by lots of our other runners.

This year we would like to celebrate the runners that demonstrated the spirit of the games values of: determination, passion, self-belief, respect and honesty. To celebrate these values we have decided to pick a boy and a girl as this years spirit of the games winners (schools will find out soon).P1050424

We would also like to give Baslow St Anne’s CE Primary School a special mention for getting an amazing 12 runners through to the SSP finals, a new record!
