The cross country league is a 4 race league held on Sunday mornings over the winter between Harlow RC, Bishop’s Stortford RC, Saffron Striders and Ware Joggers. The races are open to all club members, free to enter and does not require any pre-registration. All runners must wear a club vest.
Runners score points based on finishing position where a combination of men and womens finishers (including some veterens) are used to calculate a team's score. Each club is only allowed a limited number of 2nd claim scorers. We can field as many runners as we like and those who do not score themselves can affect the scores of other clubs, so we welcome all club members to participate.
The exact scoring system for 2012/13 is still under debate, but we are looking to have individual catagory prizes in addition to the usual team ones.
Note: The route for the Harlow Cross Country is the same as in 2012, but with the start/finish moved 50m or so to accomodate the building works at New Hall.
