With the end of August nearly here, it won’t be long until the start of this year’s cross country season.
Gloucestershire AAA run a series of 4 races. All are close by, and very reasonably priced, £12 for 4 races. Men race a distance of around 9km and Ladies run around 6km. There are categories for each age group. There are also team prizes, with the top 4 runners scoring points. To count, each team member must complete each race in the series.
It would be fantastic if we could get some runners to take part this year. In fact it would be brilliant if we could get a men’s and ladies team together.
Here is a link with more information (the same link is also under the championship section)
Dates of races:
Sat 13th October 2018 – Old Down Country Park
Sat 3rd November 2018 – Charlton Park
Sun 9th December 2018 – Wotton Park

I shall print some forms and bring them down to club also.
