Reading Roadrunners Cross Country
Cross Country Leagues
Reading Roadrunners enter two Cross Country Leagues each season – the Hampshire XC League on Saturdays and the Thames Valley XC League on Sundays.
We have the depth within our membership to be able to do really well in both leagues, so do come along if you can, whatever your speed.
Events for each Hampshire League and TVXC fixture will also be set up on our Roadrunners Facebook page.
Hampshire Cross Country – Saturdays
Women’s race – 6km – 1.35pm
Men’s race – 10km – 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 need at least 3 women per fixture, and 4 men, or we will not have full teams. Both senior and vet runners (age 40+) are welcome, and each runner earns individual points over the season, with trophies to be won. The club also rewards those who compete in all 5 fixtures.
If you would like to compete in any of the fixtures in this league, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, as names and EA numbers would ideally be submitted before the start of the season. Lift-sharing should be possible, if transport is an issue.
Results can be found on the HCCL website
Thames Valley Cross Country League 2019/2020 – Sundays
Men & women race together – between 8 and 10km – 11am
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 also have our own TVXC Club Championship. Helping at our home fixture counts as competing. Full details our championship & qualification rules of entry can be found here.
XC Championship Races
There are various local and national championship races throughout the season. Team captains will announce the requirements as and when entries are due, and a selection process may apply.
Current scoring in TVXC as of 20/12/19
Please note that the cancellation of the Tadley fixture means our XC Champs will be made up of participating in four TVXC events.
