2013-2014 CROSS-COUNTRY SEASON

Royton Road Runners is affiliated to the Red Rose & South East Lancs cross-country leagues. Cross-country races are a great way to help build up strength & stamina over the winter, to leave you in great shape for the next road race season. Races are usually around 5K for women & 10K for men, with a wide range of abilities taking part - it's not just for the top runners!


"Would be awesome from a team point of view if we can get some good numbers entered...it's really good for your spring marathon preparation and I think we could win team prizes in both leagues, male and female." (Ian McBride)
