National Cross Country Final
6th December 2015

The English Schools' Athletic Association National Cross Country Championship brings together the best athletes in each of the 45 counties in England to compete for the honour of being the best in the country.

600 schools entered the championship and only 24 made it to the final, including our very own Yardley Court.

Our team travelled up to Bedford on Saturday and ran incredibly well, finishing 6th overall. A fantastic achievement considering the scale of the competition and the size of the schools they were up against. 

Yardley Court were the first Prep school home, with Millfield 16th.

This is the first time that Yardley Court have entered this competition and it proved to be a very valuable experience. 

Our boys always approach their running with determination, focus and good humour. Running is tough and requires a lot of character, which they have in abundance.

Great team spirit and camaraderie Fin, Josh, James, Tom, Ollie and William. We are so very proud of you.
