Sue Harrison - 5/3/2008

 



 

Welcome to the

Northern Police Cross Country League

 

The league started in the late 1970's and for over 40 years has attracted runners from most of the police forces across the north of England.

 

The league now stages 12 fixtures each season that starts in late September through to late March. Each fixture attracts between 40 and 80 runners.

 

In recent years the league has gone from strength to strength, despite the pressures of securing time-off from police duties. We have recently added an 11th and 12th fixture on a Saturday due to increased popularity and to enable runners a better chance to attend the six required fixtures!

 

All information about the league, past and present is contained in this website.

 

For further information contact the League Secretary:  Steve Broadbent

 

It has been a great Season
Looking forward to the next half!!!

Five more to go at!
