Glenalmond has won the Scottish Schools' Senior Boys Trophy more often than any other school, although girls also take part in the annual Steeplechase run in the Lent Term. 

The school campus and local terrain provide a superb training facility and participation in the Scottish Islands Peaks Race in the Trinity Term offers an additional incentive to endurance athletes.

The College competes in a programme of races in the Lent Term culminating in the Scottish Schools' Championships at Irvine in March. Information is provided to pupils about appropriate local races and links are maintained with the Tayside Orienteering Club.
