Marcus ran in the inter-school cross-country race on Wednesday, and did really well. He finished 11th out of 195 runners. There was a huge pile-up at the start and he was snarled up in that for a while, but steadily moved through the field and seems to have paced himself well over the 2km. He says he passed a lot of people in the last few hundred metres. He's now been invited to go to the champions race next term, somewhere a long bus ride north.
