Darkness setting in earlier in the evening. Rainy days making paths muddy. That bite in the air on the way to work in the morning. Belting evening TV dramas. Can only mean one thing..... It's Cross Country time 👏👏👏
The fixtures are out for the three leagues we race in. I'm conscious there are quite a few that are a bit of a mooch to get to, so what I'm looking for are two bits of feedback from you all.
1) Would you like me to register your interest for cross country (fees are very small usually about £6 per full league, Liverpool also has its own small fee for the British Athletics chip timing) you must be a fully paid up member of A&T with UKA/EA registration up to date to enter XC races.
2) are there any races that clash with other events you are doing - or you feel are just that bit too far away this year.
Personally I'd rather we had a great turnout at the more local events - fly the A&T flag. I'll set the club champs races based on the feedback I get.
Please let me know asap as the registrations take quite a while to load, so the sooner the better so I can then get us all on the lists.
Please reply on this post or contact me on messenger, WhatsApp, email or mobile.

Anyone can run cross country. Ideally XC spikes would be best, trail or fell shoes would be ok, the flatter less muddy races like Leigh you could manage in road trainers at a push. Any questions please do ask me.
