Epsom Heads to The Downs for Annual House Cross Country

The whole community braved the wind, rain and cold on Epsom Downs to honour the annual tradition.

846 runners took part in this year’s Inter-House Cross Country Championships, which took place on Epsom Downs. One of the oldest sporting events in the College calendar, the Cross Country is always keenly contested, with runners entering into the spirit of the competition and giving their best for their House.

Competitors had to brave wet and cold conditions; however, parents, staff and other members of the College community weren’t deterred and turned out in great numbers to cheer the runners on throughout.
