P5-P7 Lochside ASG - Cross Country

Event Date:

February 22, 2023

Event Time:

3:45 pm

Event Location:

Loirston Primary Playing Field

Lochside 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!

The Lochside ASG Cross Country event give pupils the opportunity to experience cross-country running conditions before signing up for other events, such as our Fun-Run Series in May.

Pupils will run 400m laps of the Loirston playing field and will be encouraged to run 3 laps (1200m) 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: Thursday 22nd February, Thursday 29th February & 7th March.

Race 1: 3.45pm

Race 2: 4.00pm

Venue: Loirston Primary School grass playing field (parking available at Cove Health Centre, although we encourage you to walk where possible)


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 and which race your child will be in. 

Booking is over!
