The sun shone at Warlingham Park School’s annual cross country event on Monday 25th February – which was the largest in the event’s history.

Over 300 children competed in an U9 mixed event and separate U11 girls and boys races.   They will race round a course which was just short of 2km and took in the fields and wooded area of Warlingham Park’s extensive school grounds.

State and independent schools from across Surrey and Croydon participated and the winning teams were: U/9 mixed – Caterham; U/11 girls – Oakhurst Grange; U/11 boys: Ewell Castle.

Warlingham Park School has been running its’ annual Cross Country for 23 years but this year was the largest event in its history with over 300 children from 19 schools taking part.
