The young runners gave it their all.

Elim Christian College’s Middle Years pupils have been pushed to their limits at their fun cross-country running event.

It was staged recently at Corta Bella Park in Golflands.

A lot of good cheer and squeals of delight filled the air as the young runners from the school in Botany participated in the cross-country event, which was a huge success despite the chilly weather.

The icy southerlies didn’t dampen the spirits of those who took part as they said they preferred the cold and the cross-country team race over sitting inside classrooms.

Cross-country is a sport in which runners compete in running distances on non-paved running paths such as grass.

Elim Christian College principal Murray Burton says the race is one of the highlights of the school’s calendar.

He enjoys watching the young athletes race as they develop a love for running and a sense of camaraderie. 

The event was seamlessly run by the school’s sport co-ordinator Kim Borthwick.
