Cross Country Running

All Bexley AC members aged 11 upwards are able to compete for the club at Cross Country (XC). Great for young track athletes building up the endurance base for next year, or for half/full marathon runners giving a bit of variation in your training. Come and join us, stick on your orange vest and help boost the team, competing against others in Kent and South East London!

We have a Cross Country Facebook group which is a one-stop for information sharing, such as members who can offer (or are looking for) lifts to/from the venues. Known fixtures/dates are listed below, but may be subject to change.

Entry costs and transport:

The club pays for your Kent League entry, so we need you to commit to making at least 2 matches please. For National and Regional Championships we will need a deposit which will be refunded on the day. Please share transport where possible as parking may be limited at some venues.
