Freyberg’s annual cross country had a few extra obstacles as the weather added mud, wind and sidways rain to the hills and tracks as part of the local loop.

A record number of teacher’s participated, with several running more than one race. Regional athletic champions, Frances and Caelan Allen easily came first and second in the Junior Girls Race. Triathlete Dana Purdy won her race shortly after her cousin Theo took out the Junior Boys. Amy Chamberlain and Netra Ghimire won the Senior races for the second year in a row.

Ironically, Ruahine House had the first place runner in four of the six events, and yet faded to last place, while Manawatu House didn’t win any races but had enough strong senior runners to come first overall. Overall House Results: 1st Manawatu, 2nd Tararua, 3rd Kapiti, 4th Ruahine.
