Cross Country League

XC

For those of you who haven’t experienced the joys of cross country (XC) running before – every year we participate in four cross country league races which are held on Sunday mornings.

The other clubs in this league are Harlow Running Club, Bishop’s Stortford Running Club, and Ware Joggers.

These races are open to all club members, are free to enter and do not require any pre-registration.

All runners must wear a club vest, and we would recommend that running shoes with a good grip are worn – trail or studded shoes are best.

Runners score points based on finishing position, and a combination of men and women finishers, and some veterans’ scores are used to calculate teams’ total points. Each club is only allowed a limited number of second-claim scorers. We can field as many runners as we like, and those who do not score themselves may affect the scores of other clubs, so we encourage all club members to participate.

The scoring system for 2019/20 will be based on the first 8 men and 8  ladies per club.

Refreshments are supplied at the end of every race by the host club (£1 contribution per person please towards costs) and the team results are then announced on the day.

Race dates and locations for the 2019/20 season are as follows:-

Race 1: Ware Joggers – 15th December – men’s results, ladies’ results

Race 2: Saffron Striders RC – 19th January – men’s results, ladies’ results

Race 3:  Harlow RC – 23rd February – men’s results, ladies’ results, on-going scores

Race 4: Bishop’s Stortford – 1st March – full results for race 4 and race series
