CROSS COUNTRY

 

 

 

 

Burnden take part in 2 cross country leagues every year, namely the Red Rose & the South East Lancs. For cross country running a pair of studded or spiked running shoe is highly recommended. Details of 2017/2018 season fixture in these leagues will be posted here when information is available & also at the links below.

 
RED ROSE CROSS COUNTRY LEAGUE 
 
Great efforts, fun and achievements last year, very much a team event as well as an individual challenge so turning out in numbers is important and makes a great atmosphere. Race organizers request that all clubs do make more use of the pre-registration portal on Graham’s web site. It is cheaper for the athlete, easier for the club official and better for the league.

Saturday 14th October 2017 - Leigh Sports Village

Best 3 from 4 races to count in this competition, a good turn out in the races will help the club build on the successes last year, the mens team could even try to match the domination that  the ladies teams achieved last season.
