The Gliddon and Squires North Devon Cross Country League 2027/2018 season opened today at Kingsley.

Congratulations to everyone who got their spikes out and ran the fairly gruelling course today, especially those runners who were tempted to quit and just kick off their shoes – but they didn’t.

Thank you to everyone who helped, all the volunteers, Kingsley Friends, grounds staff, officials and marshalls.

Most of all, thank you to the coaches from each of the schools and teams, who were constantly reassuring the runners to push on to the finish line, the ever-present source of comfort and encouragement. This definitely includes our own Mr Mathers, Mr Ward and the Kingsley Lion!

All the placings and timings will be loaded onto the League website today/tomorrow .

See you all at Shebbear College on Sunday 15th October at 10am for the next race!
