Upcoming XC Races & Deadlines

Cross Country
Hi All
There’s a lot going on over the next two months so, to avoid missing out, we have summarised below all the XC fixtures to the end of the year along with their entry closing dates. If you have already signed up for XC then you have been entered for all the relevant Kent XC League races. Please email Simon if you would like to run at any of the other races.
We’ve hade a great start to the Kent XC League but we need to maintain this momentum. To that end, we have decided to prioritise the race at Footscray Meadows on 26th November over the South of the Thames 5 mile race on the same day. 
We therefore request that all men run at Footscray Meadows and not at the South of the Thames race. If you really, really, really want to run at SoTT we will enter you but please try and support the club by running at Footscray Meadows if at all possible. Jillian will be taking a women’s team to the South of the Thames race.
This year we may actually be able to field a team for every age class at the Kent Masters Champs on 3rd December. Attached is a list of all Harriers that are registered for XC, broken down by age class. Please consider entering this race and persuade your mates to join you to make up a team (team scoring details below) :-).
We will let you know the closing date for the main South of the Thames Champs event as soon as they send out race details.
Finally, it’s not too late to sign up for cross country. Just complete the short online registration form and pay your £10 into the club bank account:
