The Club Cross Country Champs will be held in Hargate Forest this Saturday (4 March) at 10am.
This event is open to all club members (regardless of whether you have signed up for cross country this season) and there are lots of trophies up for grabs.
This year we have introduced new Supervets awards for 65+ women and 70+ men. As in the Kent League, these competitors will run a shorter course than the senior men / women.
Senior Men & Women — 3 laps, approx 5.4 miles
Super Vets (W65+/M70+) — 2 laps, approx 3.6 miles
Men and women (of all age categories) will run together but will be scored separately. Prizes will be awarded at the annual party as follows:
First man and woman overall
M40, M50, M60, M70
It would be good to see as many people as possible taking part, so that we can award prizes across all age categories. Remember you have to be in it to win it!
You don’t need to sign up in advance, just turn up on the day ready to run at 10am. Please wear your deckchair if you have one. Further event details are provided below.
Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday.
