The Cross Country Borough Championships took place on Thursday 10 November at Surbiton playing fields in Hinchley Wood. This was a challenging course, as there was a very muddy, steep hill, which hindered even the strongest runners. The sun was shining, but it was bitterly cold, but this did not put off our dedicated Tiffin cross country team.
The year 7s put in a tremendous effort, especially Joseph Dickinson, but Richard Challoner were strong opposition, with two of their students achieving 1st and 2nd place.
The Juniors ran impressively with Eyoel Abebaw-Mesfin gaining 1st place, Tom Armstrong 2nd and Will Murphy 3rd. Tiffin further secured 4th, 5th, 6th and 8th place in the Juniors race, leaving the other schools astonished.
Eric Williams came 3rd in the Inters race, with Luca Jackson, David Mason and Anish Hussain closely behind, running with determination and pace. Arthur Morris and Humphrey Allen put in a tremendous effort to secure overall 4th and 5th place.
There was tough competition, with ten schools competing in the championships. Tiffin triumphed and won overall, gaining the cup for yet another year. Overall Tiffin won the Juniors, Inters and Seniors team races, which is a remarkable achievement.
