Mud runners

The Smurfs from West Melton School, from left, Joe, Otis, Isla and Maia, have done their school proud by maintaining the school’s success in the annual UC Education Mud Run event, which was held at the Motukarara racecourse recently. The team took out the Mixed Team trophy, making it three years in a row the school has won that title. The UC Education Mud Run was introduced by Sport Canterbury in 2011 to encourage students of all abilities to participate in a team, train to achieve a goal, and have fun along the way. The West Melton students’ achievement was remarkable in that more than 900 other Canterbury secondary and intermediate students from 30 schools took part in the event. Photo by Kathryn Meyers
