Be Challenged

Cross Country Running

There is a fine and long-established tradition of cross country running at Belhaven Hill.

Inter-School matches, the Patrol Relay Competition and the Patrol Cross Country Run all add a little spice and interest to the weekly training sessions.

The highlight of the running year is the Scottish Prep Schools Championships which Belhaven hosts at the nearby John Muir Country Park beside Belhaven Bay and where we have enjoyed significant success over the past decade.
