Great news, Cross Country (XC) is back for a new season.
As with previous years, gender segregation is very important with XC. This means we have both a men's and women's team that run across various locations in Surrey. Races are always on a Saturday afternoon (between 2-4pm) and we need as many runners as possible to ensure we solidify our mid-table positions.
For all you non-competitive people who just like running in the countryside/in fields, competitiveness is not the most important element of XC - in the men's league there are a few people who almost certainly above the age of 75 and we are in Div. 4, the lowest (but most fun) league.
Important dates (confirmed so far)
14th October - Wimbledon Common
11th Nov - Epsom Downs
14th October - Reigate
11th Nov - Nonsuch park (not a joke, actually a park)
Comment below if interested. All abilities welcome!
I'm interested, though I'm unlikely to be able to make everything. It'll be good motivation to ensure I finally make it to a Track session!
Also keen to join in the fun. Have sent a DM through Ben.
Ben did you see the note on their fb page from the organisers asking for contact info.
pls email email@example.com to give him your details
Thanks everyone, I'll add you to the Whatsapp when I get a moment.
Thanks, Lloyd. He has my email address but maybe not my phone number.
I'm in! I'm also new... hi! And while I wouldn't necessarily say I'm 'competitive', I'm definitely not NOT competitive.
I'm keen for the october date at least - what needed for sign-up please? ta
Would have been keen, but Oct 14 is too soon after iM Barcelona and I am unable to do Nov 11. Boo!
