There is a possibility that a new ‘York and District Cross Country League’ may be created for the 2018/2019 winter period. The discussions regarding the league are still in its infancy.
To gauge interest in this, our friends at Easingwold Running Club are holding a cross country race on Sunday 4th March, at Millfields Park (in Easingwold, fairly close to the start of the summer 10k race).
The course and event will be a ‘traditional’ XC event, all off road, with multiple laps of a 2km+ circuit, variable terrain, short climbs and mud!. The intention is to have two races, a shorter one (about 6km) and a longer race (about 10k).
There will be a nominal fee (to cover costs such as first aid, toilets etc.). We will advise the costs and how to pay when we have further details
This will be a good race for our club to enter
a) to see if you like XC races (if you haven’t run one before!) and
b) to see if there is sufficient interest in the club for us to join and take part in a league if it goes ahead!
Please pencil this date in your diary!
