Cross Country Running

All Bexley AC members are able to compete for the club at Cross Country (XC), and we would love you to, the more the merrier, it’s for all ages from 11 onwards. We have a dedicated Cross Country Facebook group which can be a one-stop for all information, such as members who can offer (or are looking for) lifts to/from the venues.

The 2019-20 venues are listed below. A printable guide to the 2019-2020 season, including the fixture list, is available here (PDF).
