Taunton School Main Building at Dusk

Taunton School House Cross Country in action during autumn term

Posted: 20th October 2021

Cross Country Autumn Term

This half-term saw the annual House cross country event happen slightly earlier than normal. This is so that we can ensure we are selecting our most competitive athletes to represent Taunton School in the English Schools cross-country event.

Participation rates were excellent with 85% of the school completing the race. The main race was followed by a highly competitive relay race, with Houses entering as teams of 4 runners to complete a 1km lap each. Average completion times, % taking part per house and the relay scores were all added together to give the final results. Congratulations to Goodland for a huge points haul and a special mention to Foxcombe for competing with such high numbers in both the main event and the relays.

It was amazing to see a mass-participation event being completed with such a great attitude by the majority of Taunton school students and few highly committed staff!
