All this year’s and next year’s Southern Cross Country events have been added to the fixture list. Which can be found here.
Racing in this league is all about friendly competition and ensuring sure every participant enjoys it. The SXCL is a series of 6 cross country races aimed at runners of all abilities. There is no requirement to register in advance and each race is free to enter. They are held on a Sunday morning starting at 11:00am. After each race the host club provides refreshments (with cakes) at maximum cost of £2 max while results are prepared and presented.
Rules for SXCL
(1) All runners must wear a club vest/tee shirt.
(2) The emphasis of this league is to provide the ordinary club member with the opportunity to participate in a series of multi-terrain events. To this extent it excludes runners with a pace of 5:30 minute/mile for men and 6:00 minute/mile for women. This translates to:
5 miles 27:30 men 30:00 women
10 Km 34:11 men 37:17 women
10 miles 55:00 men 60:00 women.
For more information speak to our X-Country Captain Sarah Down
Date – Thursday 30th August
Time – 6:45pm for 7pm start
Place – Meon Shore, Cliff Road , Hill Head (near Titchfield Haven)
There is a public loo at the start.
Bring your own drink if you need one – it can be hot in August. Unless we have a rainy August road shoes are ideal for this run.
We have created a simple route in the hope that anyone who runs it will have the courage to give it a go on their own another time, opening up training options for folk who may not be so sure about going off road and into the countryside. It is 5 miles long and easy terrain . There is
1 stile to climb over but I am certain we will all help each other over this if anyone is unsure.
Come along and have a chilled out, sightseeing run with us in the countryside close to home but still Out of Town.
Besides marshalling on the day there is a host of other tasks which have to be carried out leading up to the day, ranging from Logistics, bag packing, setting up the course and assisting with the helpers half. So if you wish volunteer please follow the above links with your details.
Many thanks to all those who have already stepped up, I have you on the list. However if you please complete the survey that would be appreciated, it enables me to maintain data integrity.
My aim will be advise duties and marshal positions by the end 31 Oct 18. To enable you to make contact with your section leaders and resolve any queries. In the meantime if you have any questions, please speak to me on club nights or e mail me
Once again many thanks for your continued support.
