Reading Roadrunners Cross Country
Reading Roadrunners enter two Cross Country Leagues each season – the Hampshire League on Saturdays and the Thames Valley League on Sundays
Events for each Hampshire League and TVXC fixture will also be set up on our Roadrunners Facebook page.
Hampshire Cross Country League 2018/2019 – Saturdays
The league has got off to an excellent start. Future dates are listed in the table below. The women’s race (6k) is always at 1.35pm, and the men’s (10k) is at 2.30pm
The club pays to be a member of this league, so there is no cost to runners. Club kit must be worn.
We did really well in this league last season (the vet men even won their category!) and would like to do so again. We need at least 3 women per fixture, and 4 men, or we will not have a full team. Both senior and vet runners are welcome, and each runner also earns individual points over the season, with trophies to be won. The club also rewards those who compete in all 5 fixtures.

Thames Valley Cross Country League 2018/2019 – Sundays
The league has got off to a good start, but we need more runners to turn out for future fixtures.
All fixtures are at 11am, and men and women run together.
The cost for club members is £3, payable on the day. Non-members may also run, for £4. Club members must wear club kit to be able to score for the team. A scoring team will consist of 6 male runners (including a minimum of 2 vets) and 4 female runners (including at least 1 vet). Full rules are on the TVXC website.
We have the depth within our membership to be able to do really well in this league, so do come along if you can, whatever your speed.
We also have our own TVXC Club Championship. To qualify, you need to compete in at least 5 of the 8 fixtures. Helping at a fixture counts as competing. Full details of the championship can be found here. There are also rewards for those who compete in all 8 fixtures.
