Junior Cross Country Training

2017 Early Autumn Saturday Morning Junior Cross Country Training.

With the Club Championships and Road Relays having taken up mid September, we now look to start arranging some Saturday XC training to help build fitness during the conditioning phase of our training year. We are aiming to extend these runs to not only include our young and energetic junior runners, but also our senior fellow members and parents who may like to undertake a Saturday morning group social run. We will again meet at 9.30 AM for over the next 6 months, with runs being between 4-7 KM, (with us looking for shorter loops for our younger members), the session will last around 50 mins. With the Hampshire League allowing those with dates of birth before 31/08/2007 to compete and with XC relays scheduled in October, we have a couple of blank sessions during that month. For those unable to attend these fixtures perhaps one of the local Parkruns could prove a suitable alternative option.

Please do let Mark or Peter know if you are interested in competing for PAC in either Hampshire or Wessex XC League to help us with registration, the fixture list can be found on the website if you do not have a copy handy. We are keen to recruit team managers & volunteers to help with The Wessex League. Please see Mark and Peter if you can help.

All the regular venues from last year have been included this time, any ideas for new routes please let us known. We also aim to run monthly long endurance runs for older athletes.
