Harlow Running Club

Road & Cross Country Running (UKA 2658068)

Sunday Cross Country 2016/17

The cross country league is a 5 race league held on Sunday mornings over the winter between Harlow RC, Bishop’s Stortford RC, Saffron Striders, Hoddesdon Tri Club 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.

The league operates under the following rules.

Runners score points based on finishing position where a combination of men and women's finishers (including some veterans) 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.

Harlow XC Instructions

The race at Harlow on the 4th December is based at Mark Hall Sports Centre. Please share transport as much as possible and park in Mark Hall School next to the Sports Centre. There is no parking at the start/finish area. The Sports Centre will be busy as there are other events taking place. You can then walk around the right side of the school to access the rear of the Sports Centre.

The start/finish area is about 10 minutes jog from the Sports Centre, so allow time to get there for the 10.30 start. 

Just before the start, runners will pass the kennels and the owners have asked that runners should be respectful of the boarding guests and not to loiter by the paddock fences. 

Please remember that dogs are no allowed on the school and Sports Centre sites.

Finally, a £1.00 donation for post-race refreshments would be appreciated.
