Cross Country

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:

Track and Field

Please monitor the club’s (member only) Facebook group for the latest information on track and field meetings and how to participate Talk to the track and field captains or your coach for more information.

The club participates in Senior, Masters and Junior leagues within the North East and is always looking for athletes to fill the roster.  Participation in events scores points for the club and it is usual to find athletes competing (for fun!) in multiple events to help the club’s overall meeting score.  If you are a runner, why not come and try jumps and throws, or a running distance that is not your specialism.

The club also encourages members (and parents of juniors) to take up technical official roles, which supports the events and the club’s score for each meeting.

Road Races

Please monitor the club’s (member only) Facebook group for the latest information about road races. 

The club runs a Grand Prix competition in both summer and winter to encourage participation in a range of nominated road races.

Certain road races are also nominated as ‘club championship’ races, with trophies warded for Senior and veteran categories by gender.

Talk to the road race captains or your coach for more information.
