I felt a quick update on some real successes to kick the cross-country season off warranted sharing. The below stands us in good stead for the first round of the English Schools Cup and Borough Championships, both of which we are hosting here at DC in the coming weeks, and both of which allow for our entire squad of runners to compete.

Virgin London Mini Marathon - The following DC boys all represented London Boroughs in the 2021 'Virgin London Mini Marathon' on Sunday. The boys and their Boroughs are below, but special mention to Jacob Taylor (pictured) who won the London Boroughs Cup for being the fastest under 17 across the 33 London Boroughs.

WANDSWORTH – Mathieu Ladure and Caspian Holmes

SOUTHWARK – Alex Wilson, Warren Wilson, Joe English, Jacob Taylor and Finbar Percy

LAMBETH – Alex Jack

Kings Trophy - Another outstanding effort from our best Year 9+ runners over on Wimbledon Common at the annual 8km race hosted by KCS, Wimbledon. We came third team in a field of twelve teams only beaten by Judd and St Alban's Schools. Most pleasing here was that 4 of our 6 scoring runners came from years nine and ten. Great potential for the future.
