They’re up & running! Return of cross-country
Friday, 22nd October 2021 — By Steve Barnett
THE mud was once again sent flying over the weekend as athletes stepped away from the track to get the long-awaited cross-country season up and running.
On Saturday, members from 22 athletics and running clubs from Essex, Hertfordshire and Middlesex travelled to Claybury Park for race one of the Met Cross-Country League, where they covered distances from 2km to 8km.
Runners, including the team from Finsbury Park-based club London Heathside (pictured), were also out in force for the opening fixture of the Sunday cross-country league, which was held at Cheshunt Park.
