Mr van Stripriaan was 3rd in the race with a time of 37.12.

There was a big field of over 110 boys who ran the 10,000m this morning.

Alex Hull, who is new to school, took the lead from the start of the race and maintained his lead through out. He pushed himself and kept a fast pace throughout the whole race. Benjamin and Adam also maintained a steady pace.

The 5,000 metres will be run next Friday morning. This is an open event and we encourage young men to challenge themselves and have a go.
