2017-2018 CROSS-COUNTRY SEASON

Royton Road Runners is affiliated to the Red Rose & South East Lancs cross-country leagues. Cross-country races are fantastic team events, cheap to enter & a great way to help build up strength & stamina over the winter, to leave you in perfect shape for next year's 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 fastest runners!

For 2017-18 RRR will be focusing (as a club) on a single cross-country series, the SOUTH-EAST LANCS LEAGUE, which consists of 4 races between November & February (pre-registration cost is £5 for the series). This decision has been made in recognition of the fact that many club members find it difficult to commit to 8 cross-country races on Saturday afternoons, particularly at the end of the year.

However, we will still be affiliating with the Red Rose League, so anyone wishing to continue taking part in those races will still be able to register & run in RRR colours - although please note that there is a fixture clash on 18th November. The cost of Red Rose entry has increased to £10 for the series, which can be paid at your first race (please arrive with plenty of time to register).

Several members have also expressed an interest in the Greater Manchester Cross-Country Championships, which take place at Heaton Park on 6th January 2018. Entry costs £6 (pre-entry ONLY) & is open to those born in Greater Manchester or with 9 months continuous residence.

To pre-register for the South East Lancs League and/or Greater Manchester Cross-Country Championships, please click on the button below. Once you have registered you will be prompted to transfer your payment to the club account.

Please register by 31st October 2017.

Any questions please send me an e-mail!  [David Emanuel]
