Cross Country

Dear all,
I am pleased to announce the details for this years Horsham Schools Cross Country event, which will once again be held at Christs Hospital School, and will take place on Tuesday 20th February. This year I am pleased to announce the introduction of a Year 3/4 race, which will use the same format as the traditional Year 5/6 event. For each race, each school will need to bring 6 runners, with your top 4 runners’ points being counted towards your teams total points. Please note below the change in the distance of the Year 5/6 event. I have actioned this because having consulted lots of other organisers, and seeing first-hand the difference in our event compared to the Sussex finals where they compete over a 2.5km course, which will run shortly after ours.

Please email me at to confirm your schools attendance at the events, and please signify which (or hopefully both) of the events you would like to enter. Any questions, please let me know.

Year 3/4 Girls start 11.30a.m.
Year 3/4 Boys start 11.50a.m.
Presentations 12.30p.m.

Year 5/6 Girls start 1.30p.m.
Year 5/6 Boys start 1.50p.m.
