Fixtures

Our endurance runners have lots of opportunity to compete throughout the year. Our biggest fixtures are the Manchester XC relays, Edinburgh Braids Hill, Leeds XC relays, BUCS and Isle of Man Easter Festival. As well as these legendary weekends away, we regularly compete in the local Manchester Cross Country Area League. Our women’s team have won the area league for the past two years in a row and our very own Harriet Knowles-Jones won BUCS Cross Country Championships 2018. We’re extremely grateful to our coach Geoff Wells who has been so dedicated to the club for the past two years.
