Cross-country is very strong here at The Downs Malvern and pupils have the opportunity to join our weekly cross-country club throughout the Autumn and Spring terms, as well as running in Games/PE lessons.

Our weekly cross-country club offers the opportunity for our runners to experience multi-terrain courses, as well as those on flat, even terrain. Courses are decided upon each week, dependent upon the nature of the next competition ahead. Competitions are held mainly in the Spring term, with a few in the Autumn term. In the Summer term, cross-country club changes to athletics club when the children train weekly for track running over a variety of distances.

We celebrate many successes in cross-country competitions throughout the neighbouring counties and we gain regular medals, both for individual runners and for our U9, U11 and U13 boys’ and girls’ teams.
