Red Rose XC, Leigh, 28th September

The Red Rose Cross Country season begins on Saturday 28th September with the first fixture at Leigh Sports Village, Sale Way, Leigh, WN7 4JY. The course is quite flat and is made up of a mixture of playing fields, trail paths and a wooded area. A good introduction to cross country if you’ve not taken part before. I have already pre-registered a number of juniors and seniors who wish to compete in the series and I have your race number. If you’re not already registered you can register and pay £6 on the day which will allow you to compete in all the Red Rose fixtures.

Juniors please make sure you bring along to EVERY race the following items:

Club Vest, waterproof / windproof jacket, tracksuit bottoms, hat/buff, gloves, trail / fell shoes or cross country running spikes.

Also remember to bring a drink (not fizzy), a banana or cereal bar with you. It’s important that you are fully prepared before you race.

Meeting point is on the fields at the far side of the running track.

There are plenty of parking spaces at the Sports Village WN7 4JY.

Please arrive at least 45 minutes before your race starts.
