Sussex XC League at Goodwood

Sussex XC League at Goodwood

Date: 09-Oct-2021


Saturday 9th October 2021   


The first of the Sussex Cross Country League races is set on a hilly Goodwood course involving a series of races from U11 to veterans hosted by Chichester Runners & AC

The League is a great series of four events over the winter for club runners of all abilities in beautiful settings with a great team atmosphere and support. Points accumulated over the four events add up to team placings with gold, silver and bronze medals at the end for the top 3 finishing teams in each age category. You only need to score in a winning team once to qualify for a medal. Medals are also given to top individuals in each age group. It can be exciting to see the League progress with Sussex Club teams and individuals battling it out for the top positions. 

Chichester Runners has successful teams and individual runners who do well in the League. Whatever your standard, however, all members are encouraged to come and run. No pre booking is necessary as club athletes are permitted to turn up and register on the day but do talk to your coach or team manager for more information if you are unsure about the League races. You will need to bring a fee of a few pounds and register for your race number. We encourage all junior athletes to arrive at least an hour and a quarter prior to their race to have enough time to register, walk the course and warm up adequately.
