Once we arrived, a very determined Miss Griffin, announced that we would be racing in order of year and gender [year 3 girls, year 3 boys, year 4 girls ...] The airhorn signalled the start of the first race and the pattern began.
Earlier on in the week, Miss Griffin chose a team of girls, from Huia 1, to take some photos at several stages of the course. The official photographers were Hunter, Sarah J, Ricki-Jean, Tegan and Renae. But before the year 8 students started, due to a slight stroke of brilliance, off went Hunter and Sarah who sneakily walked away and hid in the forest beside the track, to take photos of kids running by - without their knowing!
By the end of the day, after everyone had completed their races, everyone was really hungry and exhausted because it was nearly lunchtime and it seemed like an age since morning tea. But we had to make the short walk back to the school, an impossible task for some, but everyone made it back, somehow.
