2016 Final XC results are as follows——–
The Cross Country Club Championship was, until 2014, based on our winter month activities in the East Midlands and North Midlands X/C Leagues and the Derbyshire XC Championship and the National XC Championship races. We have always struggled to get people in numbers to these races, however since the Darley Park Run started in April 2013 we have consistently had a lot of our runners support this event and turn up on a weekly basis. So from 2014 it was decided to include additional Park Run results (during the winter period) into our Cross Country Championship and have the results from the start of the year till the end of the year with additional Park Run races included. This should help to add extra interest in Cross Country and spice up the results.
