Albyn & RGC Cross Country Championships

Friday 11th March 10am – 3pm

Balgownie Playing Fields

This is an open cross-country event which lots of schools in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire will compete in. We are looking to take members of #TeamAlford to compete in the Albyn and Robert Gordons Open Cross-Country Championship on Friday 11th March. This is a great event in which pupils will get to represent Alford Academy in a supportive environment. All age groups compete over 2800m (expect Senior boys who run 4000m). If we get three runners in each age category, we can enter a team. If not, pupils can still enter individually. It is a great experience which should not be missed! See Mr Lawson (Monday or Fridays) or any member of PE to note your interest or ask any questions. Deadlines for entries is Friday 25th February.
