Purbrook Junior School

Cross Country

Cross Country and Athletics are very popular sports at Purbrook Junior. The Cross Country season starts in September and finishes in the spring term. Children that attend the club are selected to run in the league on Portsdown Hill. It is a very gruelling league! The season ends with a Championship race held at Crookhorn School. The ten top boys and girls from each school attend to run the final race and find find out their finishing position in the league. Some children also get the chance to be selected for an area team.

Cross Country is coached by Mr Baines and takes place on a Friday. Please contact Mrs Kennett at the school office if your child is interested in taking part.
