You can now register for this year’s PECO Cross Country League. The first race of the season is on Sunday 26th November at Nostell Priory.
As many of you will already know we compete in the PECO Cross Country League every year. These races are suitable for all abilities, and we need a complete spread across all age categories.
There are five races in the series. Race dates are as follows:
Race 1: Nostell Priory on Sunday 26th November 2017
Race 2: Golden Acre (hosted by Abbey) on Sunday 10th December 2017
Race 3: Roundhay Park on Sunday 7th January 2018
Race 4: Middleton Park (hosted by HPH/Rothwell) on Sunday 21st January 2018
Race 5: Temple Newsam (hosted by Kippax) on Sunday 11th February 2018
Keep an eye on the PECO website for updated details.
We hope to see lots of Harriers out in force this year. Our ladies are the defending champions, so come on gals we need you to ‘race your socks off’ to bring back the silverware again…. And come on all you guys, promotion is there for the taking.
There is an initial one off payment of £3.00 to cover the cost of a bib which is your ‘pin’ number for all 5 races. The committee are asking everyone that wants to enter the league to pay for your own bib and we ask that you pay in advance of the first race.
Regardless if you plan to only run one race, you must have a bib. The deadline for ‘bib’ payments is Friday 10th November (2 weeks before the first race).
You can pay your £3 bib payment and register in 2 ways:
1) Bank transfer your £3 to the Harriers account with your “Full Name” and “PECO” as the payment reference.
2) Pay £3 in cash at the club. Kelly Squires our HH PECO rep will be at the club early from 7pm onwards every Tuesday from the 23rd October to answer questions and accept payments.
As the PECO administration requires participants’ date of birth, by entering for the series you give your agreement for Horsforth Harriers to provide this information to the PECO Administration.
There is small charge of between £3.00-£5.00 per race which is payable on the day at the race entries tent.
Cross country (XC) running will help you develop as a runner, is challenging whilst also being fun and, you don’t have to worry about achieving times. It is a great way to build and maintain your running fitness through the winter months. Off road footwear is essential.
If you are new to cross country running and have any queries or need advice please e-mail Marie Hart on firstname.lastname@example.org or see me on Tuesday or Thursday nights.
Yours In Running
