Cross Country

Home » Sport » Cross Country

Cross-country is a winter sport in which teams and individuals run long distance races. It is an endurance sport that requires patience, determination and commitment. Cross Country League events take place during the second term and we compete in five races. Weekly runs take place locally, with about 30 runners participating.

This year the first race took place at James and Ethel Gray Park and the second was held at Pretoria Boy’s High School. Unfortunately, the third event at Huddle Park, was cancelled because of bad weather conditions. The fourth race was held at Thaba Trails and the top 20 athletes in this race qualified to compete at the Inter-Districts.  One of our senior runners, Tristan Torr (Grade 10) and one of the junior runners, Shauna Craddock (Grade 8), qualified to represent the Central District at the Inter-District Finals which was held at Pretoria Boys’.
