On Sunday 18 July and Monday 19 July, nine Girls Grammar students competed in the Met North team at the State Cross Country Championships. The race was held at Limestone Park in Ipswich, which is a very steep course and made the race extremely tough.
Girls in all age groups competed in an individual event on Sunday, which ranged from 3 km to 6 km long. On Monday, a relay event was held. Five girls per age group in each region ran 1500 m, competing as a team against the other regions. It was a great experience running with other girls from different schools. I was lucky to have two of my BGGS Cross Country teammates in my age group racing with me, which made running at these championships very special.
Overall, the weekend was a fantastic way to finish off the Cross Country season.
