Cross Country

Cross country is extremely popular at Norwood as we have been very successful with our Cross Country teams and individual runners in a number of events in the local area and in Sefton.

Cross Country club begins normally after February half-term with the goal of trying to increase children's running stamina over the few months.

In school, we hold our annual Norwood Cross Country championships just after Easter. This run takes the children around the field, through the woods and around the playground and is an extremely popular event with many children in Year 2 to Year 6 taking part and competing.

Outside school, children in Year 5 and 6 can compete in the Sefton Junior Cross Country Championships in March as well as the Victoria Park Mile Race in May.

However the school Cross Country team competes annually in the South[port and District Primary Schools Championships at Stanley High. Teams of 4 run in the different age groups and as well as trying to win individual medals the teams try to score the least number of points as possible. We are delighted that our school team have been the overall champions for 5 years out of the last 7. With 2018 being our most recent success.

If your child is interested in getting involved further in cross country, the local club is Southport Waterloo Athletics Club.           http://www.southportwaterlooac.co.uk
