All standards of runners take part, and you can run in the auspicious company of people such as Dave Bedford's son (Tom) and Ronnie "The Pocket Rocket" O'Sullivan! Cross country is a great way to improve your running with uneven terrain helping core strength and stability, fits and starts of speed, a bountiful supply of mud and another opportunity to wear your Striders vest with pride!

Details of each race will be posted on the messageboard a week or so before the race.
