Cross Country Running

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).
