THAMES VALLEY CROSS COUNTRY LEAGUE

Every two-three weeks at 11.00 am on Sundays between October and March. The courses are roughly five to six miles. There are usually eight fixtures, with men and women of all abilities running together over mostly cross country, some footpaths and a little road. To reduce impact on the environment, the league does not supply disposable cups at races – there will be water at the finish, and at some fixtures tea and coffee but you MUST bring your own cup.

Co-ordinators: Al and Jane Scoffham
