Cross Country Running


The Purbeck Runners have agreed to enter a Cross Country Team for next season, whether it is this year or 2022, depending on circumstances.

A link to the home page for the Wessex Cross Country League is here. It hasn’t yet been updated, but as things stand at the moment, I would hope the League will go ahead this Autumn/Winter.

The Dorset County Championships are normally race 4 in the League and it may also include the South west Area Championships if it is hosted in the League’s catchment area.

There is a National Cross Country Championship for all age groups, normally at the end of February or early March and a National Masters Championship again normally during March. Unlike the rest of the country, Dorset and the South West Area do not have separate Masters events, these being incorporated into the main Championship.

The link will also have information on the actual League rules, but the important bit is to always where club registered kit.

As the Club has agreed to support a team it would be really great if everyone could give it a go and take part in as many of the races as possible. The races are normally on Sundays at 12:30 for women and 13:30 for men.
