SACS Junior School offers cross-country as a winter extra-mural sport. It helps to build and maintain fitness levels as, while participation in one team sport each term is compulsory at SACS Junior, cross-country does provide an athletic avenue for those boys who prefer to participate as individuals within a sporting code.

Runners at all Grade levels and are accompanied at all times by fit, dedicated members of staff. Grade 1 and Grade 2 boys practice once a week and get to know the SACS course. The Grade 3 boys are challenged to test their speed, while the fittest of the boys are led into the Newlands Forest in a weekly outrun to test and build their endurance. Small groups of boys, who merely wish to enjoy the beautiful natural environment of SACS, are also taken on runs at a more leisurely pace.

On most Fridays in the second and third terms, weekly inter-school races take place at different venues around the peninsula. The U7 and U8 boys run 1km, while the U9 and U10 boys run 2km. U11 and U12 boys race over 3km and the U13 and U14 boys run 4km. A group of about 30 SACS boys regularly participate in these Friday race meetings. We have some very talented and speedy runners who often do well in their races and are invited to various stages of WP trials as the season progresses.

In August each year, we host our Annual Inter-House cross-country meeting on the SACS campus. All boys are encouraged to participate and score valuable points for their Houses and the spirit amongst the boys is always high.
