Midlands Women’s Cross-Country League
Spa Striders Women are currently in Division 1 and currently host a race at Burton Dassett Hills
Cross Country is for everyone! The Cross Country (XC) season runs from Oct-Feb, with a mix of league races, one-off races and relays all on offer!
Generally the ladies run approx 4 miles. The courses are all off-road, mainly around fields, with some beautiful scenery and the odd patch of mud...
These races are huge fun, full of camaraderie, and there is a strong trend for Prosecco and cake post-race. We want huge numbers of Striders out there, so everyone is encouraged to get the dates in your diaries!
Ladies races are at 1:30pm on a Saturday unless otherwise stated.
Every runner can make a difference in XC. First over the line gets one point, second place gets two points and so on. The top four (three for the Masters competition) striders points are added together to get our final score. Even if you don’t finish in the top four you can knock down competing runners by finishing ahead of them, so get practising your sprint finish!
