Belvedere College - Cross Country

Cross Country

Cross Country

Cross Country is a hugely popular activity in Belvedere College S.J. Training takes place on Monday and Wednesday. We make very good use of the surrounding areas so training can take place in a number of areas: Sportshall, Roof Track, Stairs, Mountjoy Square, Distillery Rd, Cabra pitches or Clonliffe Rd.

Cross Country attracts athletes for a variety of reasons. Many of our athletes will race to compete and we have been very successful at all levels. Other athletes compete for their own personal challenge.

Belvedere College S.J. compete in the West Leinster Zone Championships in January. Athletes race in teams of eight with the top four runners to score. The top three teams in the Zone will qualify for the Leinster Cross Country Championships. From here the top three teams will qualify for the All Ireland Championships, which are held at different venues each year.

During the year athletes have opportunity to race in other competitions such as; League races, school invitational meetings, DCU Invitational meeting, Clonliffe Harriers Brother by your side race and the West Leinster Confined Cross Country.

All pupils are encouraged to attend training. For further information plaease see Mr Colin McCarthy or Mr Brendan O’Shea.
