Cross Country season introduction

The nights are drawing in, the leaves are turning brown, it’s getting colder… It can only mean one thing: the return of the cross country season!

We are delighted that Richard Pegg has volunteered to be the clubs go-to man for all things cross country. So if you wish to enter any cross country race or just have a question about cross country please drop him a message via the Contact Form on the website.

Cross country is an excellent way to improve your strength, stamina and racing brain – all while getting gloriously muddy and taking part in some wonderful team events. What’s not to like? You don’t even have to worry about checking your watch. See our Cross Country Introduction guide for even more reasons to join in.

The backbone of the season is the South Yorkshire XC league and its back!!! SYCAA cross country league.

Events are

Sun 17 October – Longley Park, Sheffield
Sun 31 October – Penistone Showground
Sun 21 November – Campsall
Sun 12 December – Graves Park

Times of races still to be confirmed. Will be in the morning.

The price is being held at £8, for all 4 events. If you enter all 4 then entry is funded by the club. For each event you miss you will be charged £2.

So even entering 1 race only will still cost £6

In addition to the local league, we like to get as many teams (men and women) into the local and national relays and the Yorkshire, Northern and National Championships. If you’d like to take part in any of these events, please respond to the emails sent around ahead of the events or contact Richard Pegg via the contact form. Again, the club pays for entry to all relays and championships. They are great club team events and as an added bonus you get to race alongside and watch some of the best runners in the country.
