Primary Schools Cross Country League

For over 50 years Manchester Harriers & AC have organised a primary school cross country league with over 40 schools from Stockport, Manchester and further afield competing for individual and team honours.  The league consists of five matches taking place on Saturday mornings from September to February with a relay event in March in Wythenshawe Park.

There are five matches:

  • Saturday 25th September 2021

There are four races at each match – girls and boys in years 3/4 and 5/6.   Each multiple of three is scored as a School team and there is no limit to the number of teams or individuals that can take part.

Pennants are awarded to the winning school team with certificates for the top 20 finishers in each race. There is a formal end of season presentation with trophies and medals for teams and individuals presented for the best performance over the course of the league.  There are also spot prizes awarded at the final league match.

Manchester Harriers & AC want to encourage as many youngsters and schools to take part as possible and as such there is no charge to enter. However there will be a collection for charity should you wish to contribute.

If your school wishes to take part or you wish to be added to the mailing list then please get in touch using the form below.   Even if your school doesn’t have a full team you will still be most welcome.
