Gliddon & Squire Northdevoncrosscountryleague opening event of the season took place at Kingsley this morning.

Congratulations to all runners who took part in this event, there was over 700 of you competing this morning!

Thank you to everyone who helped, Phil and his team who were up very early in the pouring rain setting up the course, Kingsley Sports Department (looking great in their new kit!), Kingsley Friends PTA for making delicious bacon baps and keeping everyone refreshed, the catering team for making flapjacks for all the competitors, Kingsley Boarders for looking like they were enjoying the use of the walkie talkies whilst they were doing a great job of manning the car parking, Marshalls and Stewards, time keepers and everyone else behind the scenes working tirelessly to ensure these events run successfully.


The atmosphere was terrific with friends and families cheering loudly from the sides of the course and the runners all feeling rightly proud of themselves as made their last step over the finish line.

Mr Last was delighted to see a Kingsley Senior School team turn out in force and hasn’t forgotten his promise to join you on the running field this season!

The results will be uploaded to the website in the next few days, the link is
