Well attended by our club, from our youngest juniors right through to the vets, we love this series. Join us!
If you're new to cross-country or just thinking about having ago then Holmfirth competes in the WYCC league. This is a series of 4 races, usually in October, November and December (see Race Calendar on Website) and these races are suitable for runners of all abilities. Races start in the morning for juniors, with the senior women usually running at about 1.00pm and the senior men at about 2.00pm. Races are usually in parkland settings but in wet weather can be very muddy when studded shoes or ideally cross country spikes should be worn. In very dry conditions trail shoes can sometimes be used. If you are interested in taking part then talk to Jonny Sykes, John Ewart or Helen Berry. The entry sheet is on the Cross Country notice board and the cost is £12 Juniors and £20 Seniors for all 4 races.
This league has 4 events normally in the October to December period. Club emails, and announcements will be made when the dates are known. As each club has to pre-enter its runners if you wish to take part in this event you should enter via the CC Secretary and pay the £20 upfront (before the first race). You do not have to do them all but to qualify for age group medals you must do 3 of the 4. Every runner gains points for the team with the first 5 counters in the senior men’s race making up the 1st team and the 1st 4 counters in the women’s race making up the first team. These events also have races for under 11‘s, under 13’s, under 15’s and under 17’s so the whole club can be involved.
