Pembrokeshire Primary Schools Cross Country Championships 2017

Pencampwriaeth Traws Gwlad Ysgolion Cynradd Sir Benfro 2017

The successful cross country championships for primary school children here in Dyfed continues soon with the turn of the youngsters down in West Wales. It was a great evening watching over 1,000 take part in the Carmarthenshire primary schools cross country at the Showground on September 21st and this event should see numbers around the same.

The race originally was held at Haverfordwest Racecourse, then Haverfordwest Rugby Club and in recent years thanks to the staff at Oakwood, which provides a fantastic venue with ample parking.

In its 27th year by now, the Pembrokeshire primary schools cross country championships is organised by our friends and members at Pembrokeshire Harriers along with support from parents and Sport Pembrokeshire. This year's competition returns to Oakwood Theme Park in Narberth on Thursday afternoon, 19th October following the bumper turnout of runners and spectators alike 12 months ago. Every school in the county have been invited to enter individuals and teams for the 2017 edition.

Pete Freeman from Pembrokeshire Harriers has been involved in the organisation of the event from the very first race in 1990 and commented "The event has grown so much over the years and inspired numerous Pembrokeshire children to take up athletics. In 1990, Gerald Codd, Shay Buckley and myself organised the event with help from Corrine Codd, Ann Freeman, Renzo and Ann Rabiaotti. We could never have envisaged the success of the event back then. I am delighted."

Races begin at 2pm and all schools / spectators are asked to arrive in plenty of time to get to the start line as it can get congested entering the park. Awards will be presented on completion of the eight categories. It's set to be an excellent afternoon and we'll be there on the day!

Speak to your PE teacher to find out how to get involved.

2.00pm: Year 3 Girls / Merched Blwyddyn 3

2.10pm: Year 3 Boys / Bechgyn Blwyddyn 3

2.20pm: Year 4 Girls / Merched Blwyddyn 4

2.30pm: Year 4 Boys / Bechgyn Blwyddyn 4

2.40pm: Year 5 Girls / Merched Blwyddyn 5

2.55pm: Year 5 Boys / Bechgyn Blwyddyn 5

3.10pm: Year 6 Girls / Merched Blwyddyn 6

3.25pm: Year 6 Boys / Bechgyn Blwyddyn 6

3.40pm: Presentations / Gwobrau

Pembrokeshire will join schools from across Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion in March 2018 as the 2018 Dyfed Primary Schools Cross Country Championships arrives at the Nantyci Showground in Carmarthen on March 15th.
