Cluster Athletics Championships

In 2012, as part of our Olympic Year celebrations, we held our Cluster Athletics Competition on the athletics track at the University of East Anglia. It proved to be highly successful and as a result we decided to make the trip to the UEA an annual event.

The children very much enjoy the opportunity to run on a circular track and to take part in a fuller range of field events (including long jump and javelin) during the course of the days activities.

This year the event was held on Tuesday 5th July 2018. As usual, the children competed to a high level and the spectators enjoyed watching a number of closely fought races and events.

As can be seen it was very close between Acle and Freethorpe and in the Track Events it all rested on the final Relay Race. Also two schools scored identical points in the track and field, most unusual.
