Gloucestershire AAA Open Short Course Cross Country Stratford Park Stroud

19 Dec 2021

Organiser's Description


A chance to try a form of running popular in other countries, especially Scotland. The distances are similar to those used in the European Championships. Although the courses are shorter these will present plenty of challenges being over a variety of terrain and overall they are very hilly.
The race is being organised by Stroud AC and is in cooperation with Stroud Council Parks and Leisure department.

Races are run in age groups u11 (1.5km), u13 (2.0km), u15 (2.0km), u17 (3.0km) and u20, Seniors/ vet 65+ (4.0km). We intend to run male and female runners together in the age groups in order to provide a challenging race but if combined entries for any race exceed 120 we will split it into gender based heats.

The event is an open contest welcoming runners from outside Gloucestershire AAA . There will be medals for the first three male and female runners in each race and for best male and female in 5 year interval vet categories.

Start times for races will be in age order, starting with u11's and finishing with Senior men and run during the morning, exact times will be advised on Athletics4u website in advance of the fixtures. 

Good car parking, toilets a coffee van and the park cafe are all provided.
