- Seniors Cross-country

There are two leagues that seniors may wish to participate in: The Hampshire League, which holds races on Saturdays, is for the more serious cross-country runner and the Southern XC League, which holds races on Sundays, is less serious but nevertheless quite challenging. Other XC running opportunities are in the Lord Wandsworth series and the SEAA XC championships.

We need to enter teams of 5 for these races so please let Janet (Ladies) and Bob (Men) know if you wish to make up a team. All races start at 11:00 am.

The basic rules are:
  • For a complete team to score we need to have at least 5 men and 3 women run at each meeting - our first 5 and 3 runners will count as the scoring members but we want to get as many runners out as possible so that the club us well represented
  • All runners must wear their club vest (or the new short sleeve/long sleeve club tees)
  • New rule - All runners must be at least age 17 on the day of the event
  • New rule - The results produced on the day by the host club will only include the scoring men/women for each club to speed up the results.  Full results will be sent out the next day.
  • Speed limit - there is a speed limit on runners to encourage slower runners into the league.  None of our club runners fall foul of the speed rules at the moment (5.30 mile for men and 6.00 women) but for reference if a runner has a recorded race result in the previous 12 months of Men - 5mile 27:30, 10km 34:11, 10m 55.00 or Women - 5 mile 30.00, 10km 37:17, 10m 60.00 - they are not able to run in this league.
