Cross Country

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing

Wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating

There is really no such thing as bad weather

Only different kinds of good weather. 

John Ruskin

Cross Country

“Running is one of the best solutions to clear the mind.”

Cross Country combines the spirits of resilience, nature and freedom. At Haileybury, it is a growing sport with pupil participation throughout our Main School.

It caters for all needs, from runners who compete at regional and national fixtures such as the National Schools Cross Country Championships, to those who enjoy the fresh air or who want to build health and fitness (not to mention the occasional bit of mud, wind and rain).

“Running is the classical road to self-consciousness, self-awareness and self-reliance.”

Our cross country team enters several meets (including English Schools, South East Schools and Hertfordshire Schools) in the Easter Term, and trains throughout the first two terms.
