And so the Quarantine Cup comes to an official end this week. Throughout lockdown there has been a decent number of girls and staff who have consistently maintained their efforts walking or running around the world, with a massive 7,100 miles travelled on foot. The staff really played their part in the first half of term with the PE Department getting unsurprisingly competitive, along with Dr Drape, Mrs Lovell, Mr Rose, Mrs Mutch and Mrs Depla, as we all raced to keep up with Mrs Bush! However, in the last few weeks the girls took up the mantle as Polly, Becca, Eva-Rose and LIV Amy battled it out to get to the top of the leaderboard, with late evening runs on the Sunday night to try and pip each other to the post.
The top three QC strava athletes are as follows;
|Year 7||Year 8||Year 9||Year 10||Year 11||Year 12||Year |
|3rd||Ada 6.38 miles||Evie 30 miles||Harriet 69.31||Amelia 38 miles||India 77.2 miles||Belinda 135 miles||Iona 43.6 miles|
|2nd||Georgina 24 miles||Claire 47.3 miles||Harriet 76 miles||Tessa 65 miles||Marguerite 81.2 miles||Rebecca 138 miles||Georgia 74.7 Miles|
|1st||Amy 115 miles||Honor 92.8 miles||Eva Rose 146 miles||Amelia 91 miles||Annabel 87 miles||Polly 204.9 miles||Amena 101.25 miles|
However, it was essentially an Inter-Company Competition and, from the start, there were only really three horses in the race; Grosstete consistently put in the hours, largely thanks to Dr Drape but Moberly, led by Mrs Baldwin, Head of Company Becca and Amy, managed to keep Ed Rich at bay, despite their sterling efforts.
So the overall final standings are;
|Total Distance||Total Time|
|1st||Moberly 1,872 miles||Grosstete 26241 minutes|
|2nd||Ed Rich 1,708 miles||Moberly 23643 minutes|
|3rd||Grosstete 1,679 miles||Ed Rich 21544 minutes|
|4th||Poore 1,060 miles||Poore 14881 minutes|
|5th||Osmund 781||Osmund 12776 minutes|
