Senior Essex XC Champs – 6/01 sign-up & info

29 November 2023 - By Annalise Tye

Another day, another cross country event, we really are spoilt for choice! This is for seniors and early in the new year-6/1, what a great way to burn off some of the Christmas feasting and start 2024 off in style!


When and where

The Essex XC Champs will take place on Saturday 6th January at Gloucester Park, Basildon

The champs this year will take a different format to previous years.  Firstly the courses will be multi lap and will be similar to the recent Essex League event, for example the senior men’s race will be 3 laps of 4k.

The aim of using multi lap courses is to make each race more spectator friendly.  To this end we are incorporating some of the aspects of the Night of the 10,000 and athletes will run through a 45m marquee.  Spectators will be close to the action to encourage the runners.

Marky T from Radio Essex will also be hand to be our announcer and to provide some musical entertainment.

The race timetable is as follows:

Race 1 @ 10:00am – U13G (3.1k)

Race 2 @ 10:20am – U13B (3.1k)

Race 3 @ 10:40am – U15G (4.3k)

Race 4 @ 11:00am – U15B (4.3k)

Race 5 @ 11:20am – U17W (5.2k)

Race 6 @ 11:50am – Senior Women & U20M (8k)

Race 7 @ 12:45pm – U17M & U20W (6.1k)

Race 8 @ 1:15pm – Senior Men (12K)


Essentially women racing at 11:50 and men at 1:15, but we’d encourage support for both races!

Please fill in the form by Friday 15th December.

Please note you must have an EA number to participate.

Any questions, you know where to find us!
