Ridley College Upper School Cross Country Race

Every year Ridley College holds a Cross Country race for all Upper School students.  It’s the longest-standing sporting event at the school.

Start of Senior Boys Race

The race was held yesterday and we could not have asked for better weather- what a beautiful fall day!  Some of our faculty members were reminiscing about when they were students at Ridley and ran the race.  One said it snowed his last race and another said her classmates would hose down the hogs back – the hill behind the school, so it would be muddy and slippery to climb – one might say the students had it easy yesterday!!
