Year 4-6 Interschools Cross Country Run
Year 4 – 6 Interschools Cross Country Run
The course for the cross country is at Resthills Park off MacMurdo Avenue. It involves a hill climb. Some training for this event will be carried out during the school day. Further individual preparation is recommended in their own time.
We would like the children to wear a Deanwell School T-shirt (provided by the school) and their own black or dark sport shorts. We recommend competitors wear some type of sports shoe and have some track pants and a sweatshirt to put on before and after their event. The children will also need plenty of water and any appropriate medication.
