From September we turn our attention to cross country and sportshall, with four league competitions in each. They all take place on Sundays between September and February.
Cross country races are open to all club athletes and we would encourage as many as possible to run, not only to gain points for their team, but to help with personal fitness and stamina. Cross country is unique because, in the legendary words of John: ‘we start as a team, and we finish as a team’.
Sportshall competitions (one of our strongest areas) are for invited athletes only.
Both events give you the opportunity to compete for the county.
