Cross Country

Home » Sport » Cross Country

Cross-country is a winter sport that takes place in the second term. Weekly runs take place locally, with about 30 runners participating.

After an entire term of off-season training three times a week, the team was ready to compete against other schools in the league.

The 2016 Cross Country season was very successful with many girls achieving their personal best times and positions in the competition. Two of our runners were selected for inter districts. Nadia Calore (left) came 40th (overall) in a time of 19:51.00. She was 17th within the Junior Central Districts Team. Zainub Karodia (right) came 31st (overall) in a time of 19:27.90. She was 19th within the Senior Central Districts Teamjeppe-inter-districts-team-photo-pre-racerr
