Fastest kids on the block

Pupils from primary schools across the District proved they are the fastest kids in town, when they took part in the annual Fastest Kid in Mansfield competition at Berry Hill Park.

Year five and six pupils from St Philip Neri, Forest Town Primary, King Edward Primary, Church Vale Primary, St Peter’s Primary, Northfield Primary and Wynndale Primary competed in a series of 80 metre races. The top three runners in each age group received a trophy, while fourth, fifth and sixth places received medals.

The event was run by Martin Cook, Sports Facilitator at Mansfield District Council and Mansfield’s School Games Organiser Nicola Biggs.

Martin said: “The event was a great success. It was fantastic to see so many young people taking part and enjoying themselves, while becoming more active. It is very important to try and get more young people participating in sport, so they lead a healthier and more active lifestyle.”
