Kent Schools Cross Country Championships

Senior School
24 Jan 20

On Saturday 18th January, the Kent Schools Cross Country Championships took place at The Duke of York’s Royal Military School in Dover. Three of our pupils qualified for these championships: Archie Burden (First Form), Edward Dyer (First Form) and Saffron Roberts (First Form). Read Archie’s account of the day below:

“We arrived at the school on a beautiful, sunny but chilly morning, perfect for running. The cross-country course was over good ground, not too much mud and with some nice hills!  Saffie ran first in the Year 7 girls’ 2.5km race, finishing 107th. She ran really well, especially as this was only her third race. Ed and I ran the Year 7 boys’ 3km race. Ed came 38th and I came 28th.  Everyone made a huge effort and we were all proud to have taken part in the race, representing SVS. Congratulations!”

Great account Archie, we are very proud of you all.
