Cross Country Season 2015/2016 - Your club needs you !!

Postby SteveC » Fri Sep 11, 2015 9:42 pm

Evening All

As the longer nights are coming to an end, kids are back at school and summer holidays are long forgotten, why not sign up for a few events and represent the club by taking part in the Cross Country season

I will be the men’s XC captain and to keep it in the family as she is also coordinating the juniors, Gaenor is also the womens captain, taking over from Julie who has done a fab job the past few years

For those that are not yet convinced here’s why you should do cross countries
• The short answer is they are great fun and strength building regardless of the distance you want to focus on whether you are the front, middle or back of the pack.
• Secondly, it is you against the course, no mile markers, or consistent pacing just you trying to stick with (or pass) the people in front.
• Thirdly, you run around in mud with others for 30 + minutes and then get fed after and be back home for the afternoon
• Finally, you meet more people in the club and participate for the club against other local teams collating points towards our league position overall

The first round of entries are for the West Yorkshire Cross Country series (WYXC). Now before you say you are not good enough that’s not true !! The events are for ALL abilities all recommended to take part, the more the merrier, dont be put off by the name of the event !!

So what do you have to do ?

WYXC LEAGUE 2015
The series features 4 races over the approx. distances for Men 10k and Ladies 7k.
• 11th October – Thornes Park, Wakefield
• 31st October - Longwood, Huddersfield
• 14th November - Keighley
• 6th December - Nunroyd
COST FOR THE FOUR RACES IS ONLY £12.00 and if that is not good enough value the club will refund £6 will club on attendance at the events

If you like to enter the league please
• Respond to this post or email and send through the following details
 Name
 EA #
 Date of Birth
• Send the form and a cheque payable to Ilkley Harriers or cash (£12.00) – if you want to send by BACS email me and I can give you details
To: Steve Coy, 1 Pinewood Close, Ilkley, LS299QD
Any questions contact on stephencoy@tiscali.co.uk or call 07711290499

So, get your diaries out, pencil in the dates and respond to this thread or on the FB page or by email

There have been some regulars each year who I would hope to see but it would also be great to get some new faces from fell or road too

Deadline is 28th September latest please for race 1 and remember to send through the money – no payment no entry

Also, other dates to note for future events – for which I will send out separate correspondence
• Saturday 9th January 2016 Yorkshire X-C Champs
• Saturday 30th January 2016 - Northern X-C Champs - Burnley
• Saturday 27th February 2016 - National X-C Champs - Donnington Park, Leicestershire
• PECO XC league – dates to be confirmed but start around end Nov till Feb

Hope to hear from you

Re: Cross Country Season 2015/2016 - PECO XCs - interested ?

Postby Gaenor » Sun Oct 11, 2015 3:27 pm

Hi all
We need to get the numbers allocated for the PECO XC by the middle of next week so want an idea of numbers of people who would like to participate
There are 5 races in the series and you pay as you go for the races you enter but you need to pre-register to get a number allocated, which you keep for the duration and has timing chip in so have a one off cost £3 (in addition to the individual race entries)
Details can be found at
http://www.pecoxc.co.uk/
Race 1 Sun 22nd November Temple Newsam
Race 2 Sun 13th December West Park Fields
Race 3 Sun 3rd January Middleton Park
Race 4 Sun 24th January Golden Acre Park - TBC
Race 5 Sun 14th February Roundhay Runners Chapel Allerton venue TBC

So let us know and post here or on FB if you are interested so i can make sure we have enough numbers
Further notes to follow
