ISB Fun Run 2011
Patana Runners Get Wet and Muddy at ISB
Mud, water, hills and rain were just some of the obstacles our Under 11 cross country runners had to tackle at last Saturdays BISAC (1.1km) Cross Country Run at ISB. It was an early start for our runners and there must have been some very nervous and worried faces when they first looked out of the window and saw how much rain had fallen during the night and was still falling. These kinds of conditions would certainly make for an exciting and interesting race.
The students had prepared hard for the event and most had been attending the many lunch time practice sessions during the run-up to the race. However, very little could prepare the students for what we saw when we got to ISB, a waterlogged and VERY muddy course. These were great conditions for a cross country race and as we walked the course in the rain everyone discussed tactics and the best way to negotiate the many obstacles.
Training clearly paid off as Patana put in some gutsy and determined performances. The weather conditions had just added to the excitement and this could clearly be seen on the faces of the wet and muddy students as they crossed the finish line. Well done to all of our students that took part with our boys and girls both coming second overall. A special mention to Luke Abai Haddon (4th in the Boys competition), Sinead Bushell (3rd in the Girls competition) and to all our year 4 students who really did step up to the challenge and occasion.
Finally a special thank you to all the parents that came along, with their umbrellas, to support the team.
Keep up the good work and we look forward to seeing you all next year!
