Calverley Parkside pupil George Harvey came first out of a field of 110 runners in this year’s Cross Country Final held at Temple Newsam.

George, who trains with Leeds and Bradford Triathlon club, won in his age group of 10 years and now goes through to the West Yorkshire Schools Final held in March.

With 20 other schools in the competition, Parkside put out a strong team of 12 and are hopeful they will all be selected to compete in the final in March.

Their success in part is due to the handwork all the school puts into their early morning training during the week at Calverley Park, overseen by the school’s John Corbin.
