Cross Country

During the winter the club competes in the Derby Runner Cross Country League. Normally a series of six races set over challenging routes in the North of Leicestershire. However, due to the loss of venues due to Covid-19 restrictions the 2021 season only has four races listed until they can re-negotiate additional ones.

In addition we have sent teams and individuals to enter the Midland and Leicestershire XC Championships. Dates for 2021 TBC.

For the Derby Runner XC we normally car share to get there and we provide tented changing and we enjoy hot drinks and cakes and biscuits post race.

Below are the provisional fixtures agreed at the Derby XC league meeting. We will update as and when confirmations are received.
14/11/2021   Holly Hayes (Hermitage)
12/12/2021   Bagworth Heath (Desford)
16/01/2022   Martinshaw Woods (Westend)
?                       Mallory Park (Dave Mann)
Most races will be £4 per person plus parking.
Junior races will be £2 per runner and the start will be 10.30.
At certain venues we have used a split start, men first, then ladies. It was agreed that all races will be a split start this season.
