It’s a hat-trick for Oakeshott as Houses compete once more in The CRAS

The CRAS 2024

Hundreds of boys took part in the annual Tonbridge cross-country race, The CRAS, shortly before half-term (Thursday 8 February). 

Oakeshott swept up the House honours, winning all three of the age categories (Novi, Junior and Senior), which is a rare achievement. Smythe, last year’s overall winners, still managed to achieve strong placings of runners-up in two races, and third in one race.

There was further success for Oakeshott in the individual events, with Kaito Paterson (OH1) winning the Novi race. 

Nico Swainson (SH2) won the Junior event and James Fry (PH5) came first in the Senior race. There were plenty of strong performances on display across all the Houses.

A good number of Tonbridge teaching and support staff braved the rain and mud on the Lower Fields to take part in this popular and fun House competition, a firm fixture in the School calendar.
