Cross Country 2012-2013 fixtures

A winter of cross country develops a great base for a summer of competition on the fell, road or track while the events are great fun too. Numerous leagues up and down the country are already underway, with many a runner now also tweaking their training diary with the bigger fixtures in mind. Get the following dates in your diary.

Cumbria League

The Cumbria League is now underway, with the next fixture at Maryport this weekend (Saturday 27th October). A friendly league with a number of low key races suited to all standards. All senior races start 1.10pm, junior races at all fixtures start from 12 noon.

Oct 27: Maryport, Netherhall
Nov 10: Carlisle, Sheepmount
Jan 5: Keswick (incorporates Cumbria AA County Championships)
