Cross country is a Wednesday games option for Years 11 to 13, although all boys will participate in their respective inter-House cross country competitions at some stage during the calendar year.

KES teams compete in the Birmingham Schools Cross Country League, running our own Cannon Hill course as well as a variety of terrains and landscapes at other schools from Shropshire to Warwickshire. We also enter a team in the national, prestigious King Henry VIII Relay Race every year. 

Individual runners regularly achieve high rankings in the Birmingham Schools’ Individual Championship and we have had a number of high-quality long distance runners pass through our ranks. You do not however need to be a champion runner to enjoy this option, just keen to run and improve upon your fitness and stamina.
