Leicestershire and Rutland School Games

Close to 150 young people in school Years 8-11 competed in the County Level 3 Winter event hosted at Loughborough University on 14 race machines.

Teams for all nine SGO areas competed in both relays and individual events over 3 hours of racing on the day. The event also had the unusual format of running a second relay event in mixed teams over 16 minutes towards the end of the event, which had some close races and resulted in some tired rowers after racing in three events in quick succession.

After racing, presentations for the top schools were conducted in the main sports hall – with all 1600 young people from other sporting events cheering the winners on as they collected their medals.
