Truro School has a strong reputation in Cross Country and we currently have the national Junior Cross Country champion amongst our ranks.

Led by experienced local running coach Jon Knowles, Cross Country training usually runs through autumn and spring time and sees a fantastic opportunity for pupils to push themselves and feel a real sense of personal victory after competing in such an environment.

Students frequently take part in country and regional races and opportunities to develop as long distance runners are aplenty.
