Middlesbrough’s best young athletes are getting in shape for the 2012 Primary Schools’ Cross Country Championships.

The popular event – at Prissick Base on Thursday, February 2 – is organised by Middlesbrough Council’s Sports Development team and the town’s School Sports Partnership.

An initial round of cross country races drew more than 1,500 entrants from seven primary school clusters across Middlesbrough, with more than 500 eight- to 11-year-olds going forward to represent one of the clusters in six races at next month’s event.

The first eight finishers in each race will then be invited to represent Middlesbrough Primary Schools at the Tees Valley Primary Schools’ Cross Country Championships on Thursday, March 1, also at Prissick.

Sports Development Manager Scott Hydon said: “Running’s really big in Middlesbrough, and we have some great young athletes.

“The Cross Country Championships is a popular fixture on the calendar, and I’m sure this year’s event will be more competitive than ever.”
