National Cross Country Championships 2017
This year the National Cross Country Championship has been selected as our Club's cross country championship.
The venue is Callendar Park, Falkirk.
The date is SATURDAY 25th February.
The ladies race starts at 13.20
The men's race starts at 14.50
Both races are 10k.
It is a parkland course but it is usually muddy and best suited for spikes. Fell shoes or trail shoes would probably do but road shoes would not be advisable.
Only members of Scottish Athletics (SAL) can enter this race but joining SAL is only £19 and SAL members get £2 discount off other race entry fees.
The entry fee is £6.50
It would be good to see a large group of DRC members participating at this event. As well as it being an individual championship it is also a team competition.
The first four ladies to finish from each club make up the team AND the first six men to finish from each club make up the team.The entries are put in as a club entry and I will collate the names of those wanting to take part and submit the Club entry.
Entries have to be with SAL by 13th February so I need to have the list by 6th February so I can complete the entry form and post in in good time.
With Nicola Hood winning the West District cross country championship we have good reason for entering as strong a ladies team as possible to see how well we can compete as a team on a national level.
Cross country races are great strength builders and ideal as part of a training programme for road races and trail races, so if it is something you wouldn't normally consider please think twice about this one and give it a go.
It is not just for elite athletes. It usually attracts several hundred for each event so please;
- CONSIDER TAKING PART, and
- LET ME KNOW BY 6TH FEBRUARY if you want entered
- REMEMBER to give me your SAL membership number at the same time
