Well done to our fantastic Cross-country teams! 
The information for next year will be with us before the summer. 

Race 6:

What an amazing final race of the season! We were so impressed with the effort that all of the children put in. 19 runners took part in the boggiest race of the season.  4 of our runners finished in the top 10. Well done to Flo, Flynn, Joel and Alfie.

The top 3 individual results from our school from our four best races contribute to our team score. 

Year 3/4 girls: 3rd overall
Year 3/4 boys: 1st overall
Year 5/6 girls: 7th overall
Year 5/6 boys: 8th overall

These are the best team results we have ever had. Well done to everyone who took part for this incredible team success. We had some individual success too with 4 children coming in the top 10 overall. Well done to Flo (2nd), Rory (2nd), Flynn(5th) and Joel (9th).


The season as a whole was brilliant. We had 37 different children represent our school over the 6 races. The way in which the children supported each other was fantastic. All of the children should be very proud of themselves.

Race 5:

Race 5 was brilliant. It was so lovely to see the children from our school with huge smiles on their faces. Despite the cold conditions, over half of the children from Great Moor were able to get a PB. This was very impressive! Well done to Oliver, Joel, Seb, Rose, Dexter, Pippa, Zara, Myles, Ishan, Fiona, Elin, and Jake who managed to get their quickest times. Sam got his best position yet. 

Four children managed to get into the top 10 in their races! Well done to Flo, Rory, Flynn and Rose for this. 

The Year 3/4 boys are now in 1st place overall going into the final race.
The Year 3/4 girls are in 3rd place overall. 

There is just one more race of the season, Saturday 24th February.

Race 4:

We were unsure if Race 4 was going to take place, but the sunshine came out and it was great day for cross-country! Our children put so much effort in. We had 21 children down for race 4, three of which were making their debut. 

We had four top ten finishes, Flo in the Girls 3/4 race and Rory, Flynn and Joel in the Boys 3/4 race. Harry and Zara produced PB times and Jake, Sam and Elin finished in their best positions yet. Well done!

There is no race in December. The next event 2 events are:

Race 3:

What an amazing event we had at Race 3 of the Cross-country league. Even though it was some of the muddiest conditions we have had, the children did brilliantly!

The muddy conditions didn't put 19 runners off giving it their all. 

We had some of the best results we have ever had. 3 children even managed to get PBs despite the poor conditions. 

We had three top 3 finishes: Flo came 2nd in the Year 3/4 girls race, Rory came 1st again and Flynn came 3rd in the Year 3/4 boys race. We had 2 other top 10 finishes in this race with Ollie and Joel. 


The three best results from each race for Great Moor will count towards the team results. At the end of the season, the best 4 results from the 6 races will count towards the league table. Currently, the Year 3/4 boys are in 2nd place. I am sure they will be pushing for 1st!

Race 1: 

All of the children that represented our school at the first event should be very proud. Miss Seeds and Miss Moston both said they were fantastic! Well done everyone. 

With Year 6 at PGL for the weekend we were slightly depleted with numbers. 15 children took park in the first event. 

We had 2 top ten finishes, one in the Year 3/4 girls race and one in the Year 3/4 boys race. This is amazing!

4 new PBs were set by returning runners. 

After the first race, the Year 3/4 girls are in 5th place and the Year 3/4 boys are in 2nd place. 

We didn't quite have enough children in the 5/6 races to make a team, but hopefully we will at the next event. 


if you go to 5 or 6 races, you get an endeavour medal at the end of the season.

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.  Last year, we had over 30 different runners from our school.

School will pay for the team so there is no individual charge and children are awarded certificates in our Friday assembly. There will be staff at each race so that you know where to go. Miss Seeds will be at the first race and she will be stood just inside the gate at the athletics track. Children will be given a GMJS bib so we can see them in the race.

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.

Theis page will be updated after each event. 


If your child would like to take part in the first race, it would be great if you could email Mr Garnett beforehand so we 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.
