What is it?

Hadleigh Hares AC are members of the North Essex & South Suffolk Cross Country running league which is organized by local running clubs in Suffolk and Essex. Each club takes a turn at hosting an event.

We'd like to take as many seniors as possible to compete.

 

How do I register?

You don't need to register before the event, just turn up ready to run no later than 10.15am at the event address and Kay or Rob will take your details and fill out the scoring sheet.

You don't need to run all of the events.

 

How much does it cost?

All of the events for seniors are £3. Juniors are free of charge

 

What are the age categories?

The senior runners all race together. The age group categories start from V40 for men and ladies. Juniors are split in the following groups

U11 (min 8 years old), U13, U15 and U17

 

What distance do we run?

It varies with the club hosting the event but generally they are around 8km. The course could be on footpaths, fields etc. The Hadleigh course follows a route around the fields close to the River Walk.

 

How is it scored?

The league is set up as a team event. You will be given your individual placing which goes towards your clubs overall score.

 

What equipment do I need?

- Trainers (preferably with good grip) or Spikes

- Shorts

- Hadleigh Hares T-Shirt or vest (you must run in club colours)

- A change of clothes - you will get muddy !!

- Water bottle and snacks

 

How do I get there?

At the training sessions in the week before the race car sharing can be organised, normally we meet at the Railway Walk car park. Alternatively, you can travel directly there and meet up with the others.

 

Where and when are the events taking place?

All junior races start at 10.00am, Seniors start at 10.45am.

There will be further information on directions and instructions posted on the North Essex & South Suffolk website prior to each race. You should always check these details first. nessxc.org.uk
