Hello Everyone,

The 2013 -2014 Thames Valley Cross Country Competition is due to Start on November the 10th see https://www.tvxc.org.uk/

The competition is for all standards of runners and is a social event as well as a Team running event, each race finishing with tea and cakes and a chat. The Race is about 5 miles long often through woods and on country trails. All clubs have to wear their club vests to score and there is a small charge of £2. It is also a good idea to wear trail shoes.

Cross country is a good base training for spring marathoners.

There are 8 races in total. The first 6 men and first 3 women score points depending on their place. But even if you don’t manage a scoring position you can push another club runner down the table (not physically!) so every runner in the team counts – so the more runners we have the better chance of doing well in the competition and the more enjoyable the event.

I am Looking for someone to be a male team captain and another person to be the female team captain. The job will be to try to make sure we have full teams for each race and to give support to those new to cross country running. Please email or face book me to let me know if you would like to do this. p_a_keene@yahoo.co.uk
