Cross Country Final 2017

Prestwold Hall, Leicestershire
Saturday March 25th 2017

World and European 800m medallist Jenny Meadows will be presenting the awards

Following our hugely successful event last year we move to Prestwold Hall for 2017. We will be using some of the course used by the GB athletes at the world cross country trials which will take place just two weeks prior to our event!

The racing format will remain the same as last year.
The morning races will be Leicestershire and Rutland year 3-4 runners competing in their age groups.
In the afternoon the Leicestershire and Rutland championships will be combined with the national finals. Once again we are expecting great races with around 200 competitors in each race.

This year we have been able to obtain the kind support of the governing body England Athletics who have agreed to help fund some very exciting new initiatives for the 2017 event.
I think you will agree will make the event the biggest and most exciting in the UK and beyond!
