Cross Country takes place during Term 2 and 3 and is open to runners from U8 to U14.
Runners run various routes in the vicinity of the school. They are grouped according to their age and / or pace. Each group has a coach who leads the training run. They are expected to keep up with their group.
Races are run on a Friday at different venues. The following age groups and distances apply :
U8 Boys and Girls - 1km
U9 Boys and Girls - 2km
U10 Boys and Girls - 2km
U11 Boys and Girls - 3km
U12 Boys and Girls - 3km
U13 Girls - 3km

Races are staggered with the U8 group running first, followed by U9, U10, etc. Runners must run more than half the league races and finish in the overall top positions, in order to qualify for the Zonal Trials. The top runners will then be invited to compete in the Western Province Cross Country Championships.
