The Summer XC League is a series of 4 evening races start time 7.15pm, Aconbury -June 5th, Kinnersley June 26th, Westhope July 10th and Shobdon July 24th.
The competition sees a high turn-out from clubs around Herefordshire and is run over some brilliant courses. Race distances are normally between 5 and 7 miles and both the men and ladies run the same distance.
The races are open to all club members and there is no entry fee. There is usually the possibility of car pooling from the Rowing Club on the evening of the race.
In order to enter the series please contact our Cross Country Captain Paul Bouston to register and allocate a race number. It really helps Paul if he can allocate as many numbers as possible in advance of the Aconbury fixture because he is also busy with course marking duty on the night of the race. Paul is available to allocate numbers most club nights. .
The Aconbury fixture is organised by Wye Valley Runners and we are always looking for volunteers to help with course marshaling or other duties on the night.
It is a XC league rule that you must wear a club vest. If you do not have a club vest please contact Paul Bouston or Les Chamberlain. If you forget to bring your club vest please see Paul or Les on the night as they usually have some spares.
Please enjoy the series, all the races are included in the Super 8 Summer Club Championships
