The North East Harrier League cross-country season resumes this week with the fixture at Herrington Country Park (Saturday, 7th January 2017).
Herrington Country Park is located off the A183 road (opposite Penshaw Monument) and the postcode for those reliant on satnav is DH4 7EL.
Parking is on the fields within the park and will cost £2.
Follow the directions of the parking marshals.
DO NOT PARK ON THE MAIN ROAD.
Any runner found to be be in a vehicle parked on the main road will be disqualified from the race.
This is a map of the Herrington XC course, brought to you by the Wearside Athletic Network. There is an inner loop which will enable all of the relevant distance requirements to be provided on the day. Not shown on the map is the copious amount of mud on the course, so take some strong tape for your shoes and some cleaning wipes for afterwards.
Club tents will be pitched in the area south-east of the start while the warm up area is to the north of the finish.
Please don’t warm-up on the course.
TBH currently top the Men’s Division and lie 3rd in the Ladies Division, but to build on a strong first half of the season the club needs members to turn out in force at the remaining fixtures. If you’re new to the club and haven’t ran cross-country before, you can still do your bit for the club by contacting your captain (Alasdair Blain for the men, Catherine Eaton for the ladies) who will register you prior to the race.
All members are encouraged to take part in cross-country as not only will you be representing the club, but it will help develop you as a stronger runner leading into the spring/summer season.
