On a rainy November Sunday, the Westcliff Running Club put on a good show at this year’s Templar Ten fun run. There was a break in the weather for the race – and our competitors put in a brilliant effort, all finishing with great personal times. Riley Payne stormed into third place overall and first in his age category, running an astonishing 6.33 minute/mile pace. Jayden Diplock, Harry McCale and Alexander Andrew were hot on his heels with Freya Pemberton coming in a few seconds later. Our other members rounded that last corner with determination and spectators were treated to many a sprint finish. Everyone received a runner’s medal and a well-deserved mars bar at the finish line! I would like to say well done to every runner – you were all fantastic and ran with such a positive attitude – you are a credit to Westcliff School. Also, thank-you to all the family and friends who came to support their children’s efforts – it makes a huge difference, and it really showed in the results they achieved.
