Every year all at the club have a chance to compete in the same match. If you are 11 and over, and a member you are in the team.

Race entry is free, but as the club does pay & nationals are expensive so please let me know if you are serious about competing. (Southern & National entries usually close 2 months before the event).

So we look forward to seeing you in an orange shirt in some muddy fields this coming autumn. A typical season lasts from October to February with 4 league matches, 3 championships (Kent, southern, nationals) matches are on Saturday’s look out for regular updates in the clubhouse or see your coach.

The dates of the Cambridge Harriers club cross country championship races are as follows:

5 miles – Saturday 22nd October
7.5 miles – Tuesday 27th December
10 miles – Saturday 18th February

All races start at 12 noon.

These are open events and we look forward to welcoming unattached runners and members of other clubs to our clubhouse (60A Glenhurst Avenue, Bexley, DA5 3QN). Numbers are given out at the clubhouse between 11:00 and 11:30 and at that start in the woods up to 12:00. The entry fee is £3. The start in Joyden’s Wood is about a mile and a half from the clubhouse with most runners choosing to jog as a warm-up/warm-down – don’t worry if you don’t know the way, there will be plenty there who do. After each race refreshments and prizes will be available back at the clubhouse.

These races are ideal for those wishing to try cross country running for the first time as well as the more experienced.
