Bye bye Cross Country - Hello Fun Run

This year our school have decided to change up how we do our cross country event.  Instead, we had a fun run and it was smiles all around at the UK Rugby grounds.

We dressed up in our house colours and rode the train to our venue.  We received a lot of waves from the locals and a lot of beeps from the passing cars.

Our cross country track was the same however we had some fun run stations that we could choose to do as well.  There was a cargo net, some tires, pool noodles and Whaea Narelle finished off our race by throwing coloured powder at us.
We were given points for participation, dressing in our house colours, and received a whopping 500 points if our family member ran with us.


  1. Hi my name is Amelia, I am from Awahono School. Doing a fun run sounds fun, I can't wait till our next fun run. I think it was a good idea to make a video of the fun run. Did your class have fun doing the fun run? From Amelia.

  2. Hi my name is Jackson from Awahono School I like how you changed it up and did a fun run. It looked very fun and just looking at it my favourite part would most likely be when they threw the coloured powder.

    It is really cool that you did a fun run instead of cross country. It is cool that you ad little obstacles. It looks like everyone had a fun time.
