Cross Country


Runners do not need to wear a bib number. As you finish you are given a position tag. Later, you pass this onto a designated recorder from your club (possibly the team captain) who will record your finish position next to your name. All clubs submit these sheets to Martyn Jenkins before they leave who then publishes a comprehensive set of results within a day or two. If the host club has sufficient helpers then the race is also timed.

There are 5 races in the winter months - normally Oct, Nov, Jan, Feb and March. All races are on Sunday starting at 11:00 am. Clubs take it in turns to host an event and we regularly see getting on for 200 runners taking part. It's probably fair to say that these XC events are generally more characterful than your standard cross country events with many containing both 'undulations' and varied terrain.
