MIC of Cross Country:
Cross country is a winter sporting code with interschool meetings taking place in the second term. It is highly competitive – our teams run in a highly-organised league structure – but it is also a lifestyle activity aimed at instilling a love of running in the boys and encouraging to develop healthy exercise habits that will continue beyond school.
It is taken very seriously by the top runners and the school provided top-class coaching for them.
Two teams, a senior and a junior, run in the Central Gauteng Schools competition and those teams include serious athletes and social runners. The meetings are held at some spectacular venues, providing great experiences for the runners.
The top athletes each year proceed to the inter-area and inter-district competitions and are in line for provincial selection.
Jeppe has an annual interhouse cross country run which doubles up as the school championships.
