Cross Country at Willow Park is available weekly for senior pupils (5th & 6th Form mainly) interested in running. To join the ‘team’, a pupil has just to turn out for training (on Mondays) and enjoy ‘the run’. Following extended training, sessions are timed and recorded to identify those capable of representing the school. The team takes part in various competitions, most notably the All Ireland Cross Country Championships.
However, the essence of the activity - for the boys- lies in the sheer pleasure of running around our large campus after a day in the class-room.
Through Cross Contry, boys learn to take personal responsibility for their own fitness whilst enjoying ‘the run'
