Harriers!! Believe it or not the 2018/19 cross country season is upon us! We are looking to get as many Senior Harriers to sign up to the North East Harrier League events as possible. Most of you will know the drill but if you don’t here’s a summary:
-Participation is more important than results. Our best results seem to come when we have the biggest number of runners regardless of ability.
-This is a rare team event and its a great opportunity to put the club on the map and show the north east how much we love our hills and map up here!
-The men usually run about 6 miles in total and the women 4. Spikes or trail/fell shoes are recommended, though depending on the weather sometimes road shoes are an option.
-All Harriers must wear a club vest to score team points, with the first 4 women and first 6 men counting towards the team standings.
-Lift sharing has been successful over the past few years, so don’t allow having no transport to stop you from signing up!!!
-The club will cover all race entry fees.
