Cross Country

3 4 Nilas Runs In

Cross Country running is done by the more masochistic element of the school - those who enjoy running 7 miles in any weather! 

We run regardless of rain, hail, sleet, snow or indeed bright sunshine, and our practise routes vary each week, all within a 15 minute drive of school. 

We take in the natural beauty of the coastline on Eastbourne seafront, or from the Seven Sisters, or from high up on Bo-Peep, we look down on Lewes from Mt Caburn.

We run through Friston Forest and take in the local villages of Ripe and Chalvington. 

Mr Potter likes any run that starts with a hill, Harry and Ed are in constant competition with one another, and we have some super new First Years who have started snapping at everyone else's heels, so our sessions are hard-work but fun.

We welcome anyone new to the group, the only stipulation being that you must be able to run for about an hour without stopping.
