Harrier League

The Harrier League is the local cross country league for the region. The Club covers entry costs for this. You will receive a race number for the fixtures below which you keep for the whole season. If you lose your number you must replace it at Race HQ (£5). All the races count towards league points for club apart from the Sherman Cup/Davison Shield which is a championship event in the league. The scoring is slightly different for this. The league races are all based on a handicap system with slow, medium and fast packs.

Full details of the Event dates, age group start times and league rules are available on the league website:

Cross-Country Resurgent Competition

The resurgent competition was set up some years ago by former Cross Country Captain, Alan Rowell. It was a means of encouraging the Senior Men to support the club in competing in all the Harrier League races with some friendly competition between DCH members. It was later extended to the Senior Women and the Juniors and the ethos remains that it is friendly competition between Club members with points awarded for turning out for the club over the 6 fixtures of the League. Previous resurgent results are on the cross country results page.
The scoring system is as follows:

Juniors & U17/20 Women
25 points for running
20 points down to 1 for overall position
5 points for moving up a pack *(not for U11)
5 points for being 1st DCH runner in your pack *(Not for u11)

Open Men
20 points down to 1 for overall position
25 pts for running
3 pts for being a counter
3 pts for being first club member of your pack
3 pts for moving up a pack

Open Women

20 points down to 1 for overall position
3 points for being first DCH runner in your pack
