Cross Country event

Cross Country event

Uplands Prep is leading the way on the sports front with another successful Inter-House event – this time a Cross-Country event. As always, we are committed to developing natural talent, providing opportunities for our children and developing coaches at the same time.

I am extremely proud of all the athletes that took part in this event on Friday 27th November. I would also like to express my thanks to the coaches who contributed to each athlete’s success. You made sure that the athletes reached their goals in a professional and supportive fashion. You were always prepared for your coaching sessions and ensured that our runners were challenged in a safe and healthy environment.

We would like to congratulate the top three athletes in their age groups and, as of this year, Uplands is proud to announce that we will keep the Cross-Country track as the standard Inter-House track and the winners of this year will be the record setters for the years to come:

I want to thank all staff that were involved in making the Inter-House Cross Country an event to remember; from the kitchen staff to the maintenance team.

Finally a massive “thank you” to all athletes who participated in this event. What an honour and privilege to be associated with a group of young talented athletes like yourselves. So much passion, enthusiasm and good sportsmanship from everyone who participated on and off the track. What a great way to the end off the sporting calendar for 2020.

I am proud to be part of Uplands!
