In 2022, NSW defended the school's trophy it won in 2019 (which was the first time since 2002)!

You can read the report on the 2022 team here.

Each year the NSW team stays together for the week and also stays with the squads from other states. All the teams race hard all week but also enjoy some social time and recreation.

The NSW Schools team comprises up to six runners in each of four classes, to a maximum of 20 team members as follows:

1. Junior girls (W15) - girls aged 15 and under;

2. Senior girls (W16+) - girls aged 16 or older;

3. Junior boys (M15) - boys aged 15 and under; and

4. Senior boys (M16+) - boys aged 16 and older.
