Cross Country Home

Welcome the cross country section of the club. We take part in a number of events between October and March. Full details of the Championships, Relays and Leagues are given on the appropriate page listed in the Submenu on the left. Results from all these events will be posted as soon as practicable. 

Cross country is traditionally a team event providing healthy competition for athletes as they build endurance for the rigours of the next track and field season. These 4-8 mile off road races provide excellent training for all endurance runners. Road runners - if you can finish 10K of hills and mud then the same distance on the road should feel easier. Definitely faster! 

As there is no Cambridgeshire Cross Country League we have been accepted as members of the Essex Cross Country League. A full programme of junior and senior events is run on five Saturday afternoons with the final meet in February ie before the major Championships. Participation in these meets is highly recommended as preparation for the major Championships. 

For an introduction to cross country consider the mutli-terrain Frostbite Series and the Ryston Grand Prix - both run once a month on a Sunday morning. 

The Essex League and Frostbite events are free to members. All you have to do is turn up in your club vest - the more the merrier. Non-running volunteers and supporters are always welcome. There is a nominal fee of £4.00 (seniors) and £2.00 (juniors) for the Ryston GP events. This can be paid on the day.
