  • Cross Country Running PE

    Schools used to have cross country runs in the PE lesson

    My mate and I caught a bus some of the way lol. We made sure we weren't first but third or fourth so nobody would sus we caught the bus some of the way

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    We only had 1 each in First and 2nd Year at Secondary Twocky

    The one I do recall was running past my Grand-parents hose and it probably eqauted to 2/3 miles via the Canal/Towpath etc and back round the other to school

    Immense fair play to you though for catching the Bus and in eqaul terms not being caught out - for certain this is something I would not of dared thing of to do as a plan or more so dare do what-soever at that time/era!

      I loved doing cross country at school.

      Pushing myself etc.

      Dont know if they still do it at school now.

      I did it around 1990 i think.

        I hated cross-country running. ours involved running through some fields at the back of our school.

        A couple of us took a shortcut one day but I got caught, most likely because I was easy to spot as I was wearing a bright blue/pink/yellow/green 80s Tshirt my bro brought me back from Ibiza.....

          A lot didnt like it when i was doing it either
          more than likely a few had a tin of beer stashed on the route and would stop for a swig of it.
          The route we did there where some uphill and downhill
          sections.

                There were paper chases too where one person went ahead laying a trail of bits of paper

                  I really enjoyed it as well and felt a sense of achievement.

                    I hated it yet I was always picked for it...

                        There was something exhilarating about it especially as it involved running over fields and through woods. I really enjoyed representing both house and school.

                          Congratulations (on being picked that is!). It was the same with me with Cricket in a way: I didn’t think I was all that brilliant but was picked anyway for House and School teams. It meant I was kept busy in the summer term when there were no Rugger matches.

                            I suspect you were like me at school and got picked for most things sports-wise, whether we had really “volunteered” or not.

                              Our class were packed onto the school minibus, and driven four miles to a place called Strensall Common. Ideal for cross country running, except on certain days when the Army are doing exercises - there is a large barracks adjacent. The public may not access the common when red flags are flying as this signifies that exercises are ongoing. One day we were all unwittingly prancing along the tracks amongst the gorse when the lead group (which were some way ahead of me!) first put their hands in the air, then went flat on the ground on their bellies. The bushes were crawling with squaddies in full camouflage and tooled up with weaponry!

                              We were quickly turned round and sent back to the bus, with the hapless PE Teacher berated by some moustached military type, and for some reason that was the last time I recall us having to go for a jolly up on Strensall Common!
