If you want to keep fit, stay active, challenge yourself or simply be with like-minded people, come and give running a go. Our school Cross Country event is held in Term 2 (May) – so get involved!
Top performing SHGC cross country runners are selected to participate at the local Central Zones Event and depending on placings may attend Waikato Bay of Plenty Championships.
A lot of students who participate in Cross Country/Road running (May – September) are affiliated with a local Club. All of these clubs provide coaching and help to their members. The internet will provide you with contact details and information regarding these clubs.
