2017 Cut Hedge Cross Country Competition

Friday 10th November

Our annual Cut Hedge Trophy Cross Country Competition is due to take place on Wednesday, 29th November. The event continues to grow in popularity with an increasing number of independent and maintained schools from across Essex taking part.

Its success may be because of our 100 acres of beautiful parkland or the high likelihood of being covered in mud; whichever it is this year's event is shaping up to be the biggest yet.

Races will be held in the following categories:

• Under 11's (Years 5 and 6) girls' and boys' races
• Under 13's (Year 7 and 8) girls' and boys' races

Each school can enter up to 6 children per team.

Gosfield School teams
We will of course be entering our own teams across all of the race categories. You are more than welcome to come along for the morning to cheer on all the runners and support your own children. The competition briefing begins at 10am in the Sports Hall with the results and final presentations being made at approximately 11.45am. Please do not arrive before 9.30am.

School Team registrations
To register your team please download the Team Registration Form and follow the instructions. Completed forms must be returned to Gosfield School by Friday 17th November.

Weather permitting
As with all outdoor activities scheduled in the winter months we will need to check weather and ground conditions nearer to the time. Updates or changes to the competition will be available on our website.
