Thames Valley Cross Country League

About

Hills, mud, small streams, cake, some more hills, a bit of mud and cake. Did I mention cake?  There’s lots of cake. The Thames Valley Cross Country League is made up of 15 local clubs who enjoy eating cake, sorry, I mean who all enjoy cross country running!

All the races take place on a Sunday at 11am between October and February.  Race distances are between 5-6 miles with everyone running together.  The first 6 men and 4 ladies in each team score points based on finish position, however, each team member’s performance is important as you could be in front of a scorer from another team thus forcing them to rank lower!  At the end of the race we all eat cake and drink tea whilst comparing the amount of mud on our legs.

Each race costs £3 (payable on the day) and we have a lift share system from the Clubhouse.
