Upcoming XC Races – UPDATE

Cross Country
Morning Harriers
 
Please note that there are 2 entry deadlines this week: the Kent Masters XC Champs at Dartford and the South of the Thames 5 Mile race at Beckenham.
 
There have also been a couple of changes since I last sent out these details:
 
  • Kent Masters XC Champs: M60, M70+ and W65+ will now run in a separate race after the M50 race and before the vet women’s race (same distance as before)
 
  • Penshurst Village XC race will now be held on Sun 31 December
NB: If you have signed up for XC then you have already been entered for all the relevant Kent XC League races
 
Please email me if you would like to run at any of the other races
 
If you haven’t signed up yet, please complete the sign up form and pay your £10 subs into the club bank account (details below), then email me for any of the non-Kent League races in which you wish to take part.
 
This year the Women’s Kent XC League race at Swanley clashes with the South of the Thames 5 Mile race at Beckenham. As the Kent League takes priority, we kindly ask that all our women XC runners go to Swanley and not to Beckenham. Last year it was the men’s race that clashed.
