London Youth Games Virtual Cross Country

14 Dec London Youth Games Virtual Cross Country

Between the 21st November and 6th December, young people across London were invited to participate in the London Youth Games Virtual Cross Country competition.  In partnership with Nike and designed to keep students active during lockdown, points were awarded for both participation and performance for those who submitted an entry.

There were some fantastic results from students across Havering and we finished 9th out of the 32 boroughs that competed.

We would like to give a special mention and celebrate Billy, a young para athlete who took pride in representing his borough and alongside his brother Teddy walked his 2km distance with his mum.

The students’ distances were as follows:

Male Distance Female Distance
U11 1500m U11 1500m
U13 2000m U13 2000m
U15 3000m U15 2000m
U17 4500m U17 3000m
