Running has a strong pedigree and tradition at Winchester, with the mind over matter approach suiting Wykehamists well.

Boys of all abilities are welcome with training sessions occurring all year round. In Short Half the focus is on the three inter-house steeplechases, with 100-200 boys competing in each one. In common Time the club turns to team and individual competitions racing in, for example the Wellington, Bryanston and Canford relays as well as holding our own event where we host up to 8 schools. Boys who show promise also get the opportunity to represent Hampshire in the 6 County South East Championships and Nationals.

In 2016 Winchester had success in the Bryanston Relay with the seniors taking individual gold and silver as well as team gold, which was followed by a clean sweep at the Canford Relays with both senior and inter teams winning gold. Outside of school fixtures we had two senior represent a very strong Hampshire U20 team.
