CROSS COUNTRY

North Wales Cross Country League 2017/18

The club competes in the North Wales Cross Country League. The league is a team competition made up of five races over the winter. Race distance is approximately 5 miles for Men and 2.5 miles for Women.

The races are only open to first claim members of the club. If you joined another club before us and are still a member of that club then you are probably not a first claim member of the Whippets. If in doubt please ask.

Within each race there is both a Senior competition and a Masters competition. In the Men's race, the first 4 runners home for the club of any age group count in the Seniors Race. The first three 'Masters' home count in the Masters race. Masters are those athletes aged 40 and over on the 27th September. In the Women's race the first three Women home count in the team.

The Men's race starts at 2:45 the Women's at 2:00.

Travel arrangements will be confirmed the Tuesday before each fixture.

Clothing

Club vests must be worn.

If you intend to run the majority of the fixtures you may wish to consider buying either cross country spikes or studded shoes. Trainers are no use in thick mud.

I also recommend taking plastic bags for your outer kit/dirty shoes and some warm clothing to change into.
