Hill Fort Run

The traditional Hill Fort Run from school and back via the top of Foel Fenlli took place on the afternoon of the 15th June. Weather was perfect for running with a slight breeze cooling the runners down. Around 70 runners began the race, although some of these were younger students in Forms 1 to 3 who would complete the shorter run to the car park at the base of Foel Fenlli and back. The first person to return was Sion E (F3) who covered the shorter race in 58mins 54secs. Mr Orchard was the first participant to return from the longer run in 1 hr 5mins 46secs. The traditional jar of ‘Oxford’ marmalade was presented to the first student returning in the longer run. For the second year running this was John K (U6). Many students completed the courses and deserve congratulations for firstly taking part and then finishing the run in their own way. The highlights were:
