On your marks, get set, go! We take a look back at the Ipswich School cross country in 1975.
The young students of Ipswich School tackled their way through muddy ditches, slippery slopes and forded streams to compete against their class mates for cross country champion.
Some of the students appeared to be struggling their way through the tough terrain, while others were fresh faced and ready to do the course all over again.
