From Coach Sawyer-Price:

It was GREAT to see all of you parents turning up to cheer on your brave children, and a special thanks must go to KYLA's MUM for providing delicious homemade after-race cookies! I was so glad that you parents got the chance to see just what a lot of determination, guts, and courage it takes to run a long race against a huge field of runners!

We were blessed with a beautiful cool autumn morning for the race, and altogether there was a great field of 40 middle school runners who participated. We raced against students from Zurich (ZIS and ICSZ) as well as from Geneva.

The results don't indicate the breakdown of grade (6, 7, or 8) for the middle school event, and so it is well worth bearing that in mind when looking at each runner's position in the field. Most of them were running alongside students who were often one or two grades ahead in school, which should make our runners feel even more proud of their achievements! They ALL ran their hearts out—and we coaches as well as parents were so proud of you!

This was the first-ever race for all of our Middle School girls (Kyla, Anna, and Lara), and the first race on home turf for Platon and Marco. They ALL scored a personal best and now have a time to improve on, as they will run exactly the same circuit in a couple of weeks.
