Reading Roadrunners Cross Country 2023-24
Details of RR Cross Country Club Championship Rules can be found here
Thames Valley cross-country fixtures:
All races will start at 11am, apart from Metro’s starting at 4pm, with a single mixed race of around 8km.
The entry fee for each of the fixtures below is £4 per club member and £5 for non-club members, payable in advance on myclubhouse.co.uk
Club vest must be worn for these, so make sure you check the bottom of the drawer to see if yours is still there (or like me still fits), if you require a new vest/t-shirt then these can now be purchased at Up and Running, in Reading.
The majority of the courses will be suitable for a trail shoe with a decent grippy outsole, spikes will not be needed.
