Cross Country League

Athletics Norfolk Team Cross Country League 2019/20

We are pleased to announce a new senior team Cross Country competition for the winter season 2019/20. This is a pilot year and will be based on four existing Sunday fixtures. The fixtures and the format are as follows:


Race 1

Houghton Hall cross country race, hosted by West Norfolk AC on Sunday 3rd November. 

Entries are now open and available on the day: https://www.sublimeracing.com/enter-race/6708#anchor


Race 2

Shouldham Warren cross country series, hosted by Ryston Runners, on Sunday 8th December. Numbers can be reserved online, all entries paid on the day. http://www.rystonrunners.org.uk/joomla/index.php/cross-country


Race 3

The Norfolk XC championships at Thetford on Sunday 5 January. Hosted by Athletics Norfolk, entries will open later in the year on the AN website - no entries on the day.


Race 4

Horsford XC on Sunday 2 February, organised by Norwich Road Runners. Entries on the day.


FORMAT AND PRIZES

Each of the races will be a single race for men and women. There will be four to score in a team and there will be prizes at the end of the series for the first three male and female A and B teams, ie 12 prizes in total. The series will be based on the best three scores from the four events. All results will be based on position, not time, working downwards from 200 points for first place, 199 for 2nd, etc.


Awards will be presented as part of the AN awards night at the end of the season.


We will not be awarding individual prizes for the series because the emphasis is on teams. However, all the events are stand-alone races in their own right and will have their own prizes. We will also publish the full cumulative results for individuals.


The league will not be for juniors although some of the events will have junior races on the same day.


The results, including team positions, will be published on the Athletics Norfolk website within a couple of days after each race.


LEAGUE FEES

There will be no extra fees to be part of the league as Athletics Norfolk are covering the cost of the trophies, therefore the only cost will be entering each event


We hope that clubs will publicise these races and encourage their members to participate.
