Year 6 pupil from Friends’ Junior School, Max Godfrey, represented Uttlesford at the recent Essex Cross Country Championships in Chelmsford.

After finishing first at the USSP cross country at Newport Free Grammar in late November, he qualified to compete for Uttlesford against the best runners in his age group from all over Essex at Hylands Park on Friday, March 28.

The highly competitive event saw around 100-120 children compete in each year group race. Max ran a superb race over a challenging and difficult course to beat out runners from Southend, Thurrock, Basildon, Colchester and Harlow to finish second in the Year 6 race.

A team of eight runners from Friends’ represented Uttlesford at Hylands Park. They were: Year 4 – Cecily Hannam (12th) and Alice O’Callaghan (21st); Year 5 – Lily Godfrey (6th); Year 6 – Max Godfrey (2nd); and the Year 6 girls’ team – Rosie Bromell, Margot Annis, Mia Gregory and Grace Clarke.
