Alton Sports Hampshire Cross Country League
We are pleased to have received support and sponsorship for the Hampshire Cross Country League for the next two seasons from Alton Sports.
They will be attending most of our fixtures, offering an excellent range of running clothing and accessories.
The league season runs from October to February and comprises five races in Hampshire and neighbouring counties.
The 2015/16 Hampshire Cross-Country League season gets under way on Saturday with the traditional opener at Farley Mount near Winchester.
Under 11 races
There will be two races for Under 11s, a Girls' race at 11:20 and a Boys' race at 11:35.
There will be a £1 charge for entry payable at the registration desk near the Winchester & District AC refreshment area.
Please note: there will be a £2 car park fee to park on Forestry land which is adjacent to the Countryside park.
Despite City of Portsmouth AC's best efforts to secure a course for our November fixture, it has proved impossible. We DESPERATELY need a club to volunteer a course, with all the associated marshals etc or we will NOT have five fixtures.
Basingstoke's match at Popham Airfield has now been moved to November, in order to give any club time to put together a course, measured, permitted, marshalled and with First Aid cover for February, but we need a response NOW. I cannot stress this enough, if you want your League to continue to be the success that it has been, we need your help. Failing that, the Reading fixture in January will finish the season.
Any prompt replies please to the League Chairman, Ken Littlejohns.
