At Hikuai School we try our very best to give our students experiences that are as real and relevant as they can be, which is why we make our school cross country a proper school cross country! It is run over a 2.5 km course and is one of the hardest but funnily enough one of the most enjoyable around. It begins with a swift start over flat ground followed by a very steep run up through a pine forest. The children summit the top and then run down through scrub land, finally finishing off with a sprint through the now famous swamp! Below are some pictures of past cross country races.
