Cross Country Season 2016/2017

[Updated 08/08/2016]

Cross country (XC) is a great off-road racing series open to everyone over the autumn and winter months. It provides a great base to build a marathon from, as well as to keep training up during the colder months.

It’s well known that the greatest runners in history have all been great XC runners at some point.

The dates will be added to the calendars on here and Facebook as they are known, until then the full list of provisional events and dates will be updated here. Note that some events are still To Be Confirmed
