A quick turn around this week with the Cross Country Championships on 8th August at Halswell Quarry.  The details of the event can be found here.  The first race is the U10 and U12 grades at 1:05pm with the Men’s race finishing the programme at 2:40pm.

You can never predict conditions for this event – it can be a hard and fast track or a complete mud bath.  Both are fun and by the time you finish you’ll have your own favourite bits of the course and those you could happily skip.

As a Championship event the grade placegetters get awarded medals and there are also a number of trophies for teams and individuals available.

There are 3 things particular to this event that need noting:

  • If you wish to be considered for the Canterbury Team for the National Cross Country Champs then make sure you fill out your nomination form and hand it in on the day. 
  • If you wish to run in a race outside your normal grade note it on the entry form.  This mainly applies to Masters athletes who may wish to run the Open Race with the Seniors.
  • We are duty club at this event so will need members to help with the tasks we are assigned.  Please make yourselves available for this.
