Patrol Relay 2024

Patrol Relay 2024

Another great patrol cross-country event was held this week as Belhaven’s annual Patrol Relay was run along the 7.6 km route between the school and John Muir Country Park.  Each patrol divides itself into four teams, A, B, C and D and then each team into seven legs over the distance.  The weather was cool, but dry, and the winning A-team was the Woodpeckers’ A-Team who covered the distance in just over 31 minutes 41s, and the slowest D-Team coming in some 11 minutes later. 

The Woodpeckers dominated this year’s event in fact, winning the A-, B- and D- events, the Wolves winning the C-team event.  Overall the placings were, in order, first Woodies, second Owls, third Wolves, fourth Lions with notable runs coming from Alfie, Blake, Monty S., Rollo and Xander.

Every fit and available pupil from our top five years, 98 in all, competed.

Here are some good pictures from a great event.
