Cross Country training (XC)
We welcome all athletes including our young and energetic junior runners, but also senior members and parents who are looking to keep fit with a Saturday morning off road run. We will maintain our 9.30 AM time slot for our runs of between 5-8 KM, (with us looking for shorter loops for our younger members), the session will last around 75 mins but less for younger runners. We will see if we can supply some warm drinks in the colder mornings.
The Cross Country Season sees several Saturday events which means we will not train on these days, but hope many of you will wish to gauge your developing fitness at these & show what a strong squad we are building within our club.
