Active Schools Cross Country

Each year, between November and June, Active Schools hold a series of “Cross Country” races across Aberdeenshire for primary aged pupils.

It kicked off with our North series in November, which runs through to April, with 6 Saturday morning races across Fraserburgh, Banff, Peterhead, Turriff, Ellon and Mintlaw taking in the grounds of Haddo House and Aden Park.

Just as you think, we’ve broken the back of the North series, we kick start our Central series in late February with another 6 events, this time after school covering Kemnay, Westhill, Alford, Huntly, Meldrum, as part of the Kayleigh’s Wee Stars Event, and Inverurie networks including a run round the wonderful Bennachie.

Not to be outdone, our South team have 5 planned events in their series beginning in March at Aboyne through to events in Banchory, Denlethen Woods in Laurencekirk, Stonehaven and Portlethen
