P5-P7 Cults ASG - Cross Country

Event Date:

January 26, 2023

Event Time:

3:45 pm

Event Location:

Cults Primary Playing Field

Cults ASG Active Schools is holding a small series of winter races to give P5-P7 pupils the chance to practice cross-country running in colder weather and on muddier surfaces!

A number of Aberdeen schools sign up for the Balgownie Cross Country Championships run by Albyn School & RGC. The Cults ASG Cross Country events give pupils the opportunity to experience cross-country running conditions before signing up for other events.*For pupils at Cults Primary, this series will be used as a qualifying event for those who wish to participate in the Balgownie Cross-Country Championships.*

Pupils will run 600m laps of the Cults Primary Schoool playing field and will be encouraged to run 3 laps (1800m) but if they are struggling then we would encourage them to complete one or two laps instead and then aim for a longer distance the next time.

Depending on the number of pupils signed up to participate, there will likely be 2 races (either P5/P6 running together, or P6/P7 running together). Please don’t be put off by running against boys/girls or against pupils in different year groups; it is a chance for you to gain your own experience and to improve your own time or the number of laps you complete.

Race Details:

Scheduled dates (to be confirmed start of term 3): Fri 26th Jan, Thurs 1st Feb, Tues 6th Feb

Race 1: 3.45pm

Race 2: 4.00pm

Venue: Cults Primary School grass playing field (parking available next to Hillview Community Church)


These tend to be cold afternoons and sometimes wet/muddy, so suitable sports shoes are required. Warm clothing for before/after races and any relevant inhalers, water bottles etc must be brought along. Pupils participating will be supervised by Active Schools but any pupils spectating must be looked after.

If you intend to run, please sign up so that you can receive event information, e.g. cancellation due to bad weather.
