Cross country has a very strong tradition at Uppingham. It is a popular option for both boys and girls and is a major sport in the spring term. The beautiful Rutland countryside adds to the sport's appeal.One of the highlights of the School’s sporting year is ‘The Routh’; the inter-house cross country championships held in the last week of the spring term. All Uppinghamians and many staff take part in the challenging five mile run.
Gareth Matthews oversees the Cross Country and is supported by nine members of staff.
The East Midlands league was set up several years ago to enable competitions and fixtures to take place with schools in the region including Oakham, Oundle, Bromsgrove, Repton, Rugby, Welbeck, Wellingborough and Worksop. Uppingham teams do very well in this league and come in the top three positions most years.
