The King’s School Rowing Club travelled the short distance down the road to compete in the annual Runcorn Head race on Saturday. The Runcorn Head race course is held over 6800m and is a great test just before travelling down to London this coming Friday (15th March) for the Schools’ Head.
We took 48 athletes to the morning division to race in the tough conditions and we delivered some good performances considering the challenge the weather created.
We came away with some really close racing and enjoyed the experience as a club.
The 1st VIII were the fastest boat of the day, winning by 80 seconds over a strong Liverpool University crew.
The girls J16 VIII also took the win in their category and placed highest in the females Eights.
We hope that all of our athletes took some good lessons from this race and prepare for Friday’s race on the Thames.
