2019/20 Ellisons Solicitors Cross Country League

29 September 2019 - By Brigid Wallen

The XC season will soon be here so it’s time to go looking for your spikes or studs and brush off last season’s mud.

We have had several new members since the end of last season so you might want to click on the link to read all about the league and how it works.

We are in Pool A so will need a minimum of 8 men and 4 women for a scoring team however, the more runners we have the better as we can push other teams further down the scoresheet.

All races are approximately 5 miles. No need to enter beforehand, just turn-up at the venue with your black and gold club vest or t-shirt (no training tops) and give your name to myself or Bill.

As with all our team events, this is open to all abilities so if you haven’t run XC since school, now is your chance.

If you are considering training for a marathon in the near future there is no better way to build your strength and stamina. It is no coincidence that the top runners all run XC as part of their schedule. Just listen to Paula Radcliffe, Sir Mo, Heydon and Scott, need I say more!!

As if it couldn’t get any better we have a cake rota, your reward for taking part.

Watch this space for details of our first fixture…. 😄
