INTRODUCTION


Yuan Ching Cross Country has a long history dating back from the 1980s. Back then, the female runners achieved numerous medals in the National Inter-School Cross Country competitions. In recent years, the Cross Country ‘B’ Boys has made remarkable improvements, achieving a commendable 17th and 11th team position in the National Inter-school Cross Country Championships 2014 and 2015 respectively. The CCA was then officially revived in 2016.

In 2019, our Yuan Ching Cross Country team clinched their first National Inter-School Track and Field and National Inter-School Cross Country medals since the 1990s. In that same year, the ‘C’ Divison Boys achieved a 8th Team position in the National Inter-School Games Cross Country Championships.
