Roto-o-Rangi School

Cross Country

Our cross country training starts in Term 3 and all children are encouraged to give it a go.  Our annual Cross Country event is held in September each year on a neighbouring farm and run across spectacular countryside with very challenging hill climbs, all the while with parents and children cheering them on.


Champion Girl: Eden Early

Champion Boy: Juan Holten

Each year all students also compete in the Rural Schools Cross Country event at Lake Karapiro racing against the other Cambridge Rural schools.  The top six from each senior age group then form the Rural Team to compete at the Cambridge Inter Schools Cross Country event.
