Derbyshire Cross Country Mini League Match 3 Derby Dec 15th

Derbyshire clubs and schools are invited to participate in Mini League cross country. The league is friendly and informal, and ideal cross country environment for novice and experienced young runners alike. Now in its fourteenth year, the league has helped develop local young athletes, many of whom have gone on to regional and national success. It also gives many their first taste of competitive cross country.
Courses are well marked and marshalled, risk assessed, and involve no running on roads. Courses are generally ‘easy’ with one or two more challenging hills or climbs.
Fixtures Saturday a.m. at 11am, approximate finish time 12.30pm.
