Our Cross Country league runs from the 1st of January to the 31st of December. We are currently in two Cross country Leagues which are the Saturday North Midlands XC League where the ladies races start at 1.55pm and the mens races start at 2.20pm and the East Midlands XC league where the races start at 11am. In addition to these races we also include the Derbyshire CX Championships Race, The National CX Championship Race, The Wollaton Park Easter Race, the Dovedale Dash and for 2019 we have also added the Duffield 5 and Little Eaton 5 races :)

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.
