Southern Cross Country League
The emphasis of Southern Cross Country league (formally the Today's Runner League) is "to provide ordinary club members with the opportunity to participate in a series of cross country events. The atmosphere is to be enjoyable and social without the cut and thrust that is associated with specialist cross country leagues."
Each race is about 5 miles (8k) and as they exclude each clubs "faster runners" provide an ideal introduction to cross country racing, in a social and friendly atmosphere.
The Southern Cross Country races are free to enter for individuals, and with no registration, numbering or race timing, simply collect a finishing number at the end of the run to record your finish position. The league rules simply ask that you wear a club vest to be included in the results.
Clubs score as teams and league scores are calculated by counting the finishing position of the first 5 men, and first 3 ladies from each club.
Post-race food and refreshments are provided by the host club at a cost of up to £2.
Why not come along and support your club, and enjoy an off road run where the emphasis is firmly on enjoyment.
