Cross Country 2018
Structure - As well as our annual cross-country champs, Whanganui High School students compete and train through the school. We have a year-round programme with emphasis on cross country and conditioning during winter and athletics in summer. The cross country programme caters for winter sports players.
Competitions - The WHS School Cross Country takes place on Wednesday 9 May at Springvale Park.
Year 9 and Year 10 students will be preparing for this in PE classes.
From the school event, teams will be selected for the Whanganui Secondary School’s competition, which takes place on Thursday 24 May.
Our most successful runners will then be invited to represent Whanganui High School at the National Secondary Schools' Cross-Country event held in Taupo on 16 and 17 June 2018.
Costs: The school and interschool events incur no financial cost, just an investment in regular training.
Training Days: Generally, Tuesday and Thursday at school from 3.15pm, with some Saturday morning trainings close to competitions.
