General information:

Running is great fun as well as good for your health and our school is full of fantastic runners.  Last year a many of our pupils entered the Stockport Schools Cross Country events and did very well.  Races are held at Woodbank Park on Saturday mornings (dates and times below) and there are 2 races for boys and 2 for girls depending on age.  We would like to enter Great Moor Juniors into the Schools Cross Country running competition which is organised by Stockport Harriers.  The route is clearly marked. Previously there have been around 80 runners in each category from all different schools.   We are looking for runners in all categories. 

If your child may be interested, please email Mr Garnett for any further details.  joe.garnett@greatmoor-jun.stockport.sch.uk

School will pay for the team so there is no individual charge and children are awarded certificates. 

The first 10 chilldren in each race will get a Certificate of Achievement on the day.

At the end of the season, all children who race in 5 or 6 races will recieve Endeavour Medals. The top 3 children and teams recieve an award. The top 10 children overall will recieve a certificate. 

The cross country events are great fun and we want to put a big emphasis on co-operation and teamwork. There is a parent WhatsApp group that you are welcome to join. Just ask at any of the events.

If your child would like to take part in any of the races, it would be great if you could email Mr Garnett beforehand so he can have a list ready for the day so staff can look out for them.

The events start and finish at the Woodbank Park Athletics Stadium. The best Post Code for car park access SK1 4BN. It does get busy on the day.
