Sue Harrison - 5/3/2008

Shelli GordonDurham Fixture 2015Jim Bentley



 

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 early October 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 that add a better chance to attend the six required fixtures!


New for 2021 we have created a Summer 10K Trail  Series. This year we  will have just three fixtures but hope to increase this to six in Summer 2022.

 

All information about the XC League and Trail Series, past and present is contained in this website.

 

For further information contact the League Secretary:  Steve Broadbent

Pre-entry runners will receive a reusable race number.

The pre-entry system allows us to monitor numbers attending and audit entries. This is in-line with government guidelines concerning races.

Entry fees are being kept to a minimum and we hope to award a race memento at the end of the season to all those who have completed six of the 12 fixtures.

NPCCL 2021/2022

We have set the fixture dates for 2021/2022 starting 6 October 2021. Hopefull things will be back to normal by this time! The dates are posted on this page and Force venues have now been added. Will Force Leads please contact Steve Broadbent to confirm details.

We have now added an 'entry system' to the NPCCL for the first time. This is to comply with Covid guidelines regarding race numbers but does also add a degree of improved control over numbers attending as well as recording of personal details such as age catagories. It also generates some additional income for the League that will be used to pay for end of season prizes and League Mementos for those who have completed six fixtures. Force Sports Clubs will still contribute to the League as usual.

Here is the BookItZone link to enter either up to six or all 12 fixtures:

NEW! Northern Police Trail League

They all start at 1.30pm on a Wednesday. This mid-week time is best suited to Police Staff copying the same NPCCL model that has been successful for countless years.

  • Northern Police 10k Trail Race #2 – Wednesday 18 August 2021 – Starting at 1.30pm - Parbold
  • Northern Police 10k Trail Race #3 – Wednesday 1 September 2021 – Starting at 1.30pm - Boltby Forest, Thirsk YO7 2HT
We have no implimented an on-line entry system for all runners. Every runner must pre-enter. The cost is:

2019/2020 Results News

Here are the final individual and team prize placings for the 2019/2020 Season. It was hoped to present these at the first NPCCL fixture of the 2020/21 Season but COVID19 is likely to prevent this happening for the forseeable future. So as to finally box off the last season, I will  be sending out cash prize cheques to all the recipients before Christmas.

Well done to everyone who took part last season. Despite COVID preventing the last fixture we have generated the highest number of runners in the League since the mid-1990's.

Special thanks to all Force Team Captains for their hard work mustering their teams.
  • 647 runners over 12 fixtures (Average 54 runners per fixture)
  • 413 Men
  • 213 Ladies
If you are one of the season winners then please contact me by Whats' App with your address to send out the cheque.

You will note that I will send all team prizes to your Team Captain for he/she to distribute among the team at their discretion at some point in the future. Perhaps toward a round of drinks for the team at a post-covid party!

You will be aware that the PSUK Nationals are also cancelled in March.  In view of this I am not hopeful that we can consider staging a fixture this season.

I hope everyone stays fit and well and will look forward to running with you at the soonest!
