Toby Leads From The Front
Toby Garrick took part in the Devon Schools Cross Country Championships at the Stover School on Sat the 19th in the Senior Boys Category. With a race distance of 6.4km Toby had an average pace of 5:28 minute miles and finished in a fast 21m:44s, In-fact he was 2 minutes quicker this time than in the previous years attempt. He won with a very good distance between himself and the second finisher, with at least 120 metres separating them. Toby had decided to try a new racing strategy of leading from the front, This new tactic kept him clear of the pack for two out of the three long laps. His next race will be the South West Schools Championships in Bath on the 2nd February.
Taking part in the same race was another young Mighty Green runner Will Ashby and a fellow Sidmouth school colleague (non MG but part of the team), Will took the 12th place over all and their colleague came in 15th making Sidmouth the team winners over all.
Also running in the girls intermediates and seniors race was Kate Marriott Race. Her race went well, coming in 11th place over all. This secures her as the reserve for Nationals! Well done Kate.
