Erin is 16th fastest in the country at the 1500m!

Erin in Year 6 travelled to Birmingham during the last week of term to compete in the National Finals 1500m U12 athletics competition after coming 2nd in the area championships. She warmed up, and was feeling calm and collected and ready to run against girls a whole year older than her! 

The starting gun fired and they had a flying start with Erin keeping up at 3rd in the pack. By the end of the first lap Erin was at the back but not far off and in just one lap she overtook 3 people ending up 7th in her heat with a personal best time of 5 minutes and 39 seconds. This makes her the 16th fastest U12 1500m runner in the country! A massive congratulations to Erin.
