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 five fixtures starting in April through to September 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

Fixture #1 - Cheshire

Northern Police Trail Race Series 2022 - Update
Welcome! We are fast approaching the start of the 2022 Trail Race Series. Thank you to Jack Pilkington and his team from Cheshire for hosting the first fixture.
A big thank you to everyone who has pre-entered, we have around 24 entries so far. Entries to the Series are continually open through to the last fixture and further runners can enter on the day or enter retrospectively for this and following fixtures. Please forward this email asking them to use the Bookitzone link found at www.npccl.co.uk
Fixture #1 - Cheshire Trail Race 25th May 2022 starting at 1330hrs
The opening fixture of the Northern League Summer Trail Series will take place from Beeston in the middle of the scenic Cheshire countryside. The 10k route will head out to the Sandstone Trail with a mix of country roads to link the paths up before heading back to Beeston. Trail shoes would be bob on but if the weather stays as it is, road shoes would be perfect as well. (Course map below)
We have arranged for us to use the car park at the Cheshire Workshops (Beeston Candle factory) on Barracks Lane, CH39PF. Which will also be the race start and finish.
Please park at the back of the car park away from the Workshop to enable access for Workshop customers. It is a sizeable car park so this shouldn’t be an issue. There is also a cafe there, serving hot drinks, snacks and food till around 3/4 so please pop in if you fancy anything.
There are no changing facilities so come dressed to run. Just please don’t congregate in or around the building unless you’re popping to the cafe!
The route encompasses over 300m of elevation with a surprise or two thrown in with great views, so should be fun! There will hopefully be Marshall’s at key points on the route but we will try in vane to mark it out impeccably with police tape and other markings!
There will be some light refreshments and water provided at the finish.
Looking forward to seeing you all on the 25th.
If you use FaceBook and not in the NPCCL Group then please consider joining to be up to speed with information on the Series.


We have now implimented a new on-line entry system for all runners. Every runner must pre-enter.

2022 Trail Season

  • All 5 Fixtures - 15
  • Single Entry - 5 per race
Pre-entry runners will receive a reusable race number. These numbers can be used for both Trail and XC Races.

Northern Police Cross Country League 2021/2022 Season
Final Fixture 12 - GMP - 30 March 2022

A big thank you to Gary GazGaz Cornez, Shannon Davies and the GMP Team for hosting a fantastic last fixture of the season at Sale, Manchester. An interesting 5.4 mile two-lap course along the banks of the River Mersey made for a fast, meandering run. Some pretty rough trail underfoot in places made it quite tricky and challenging.
North Yorkshire swept the board a second season with Simon Fricke (North Yorkshire) defending his title a second year, winning the men's and Haley Addison (North Yorkshire) winning the ladies.
Simon Banfield (Lancashire) won the Veteran 40+ title and Helen Nicholson (North Yorkshire) won the ladies title.
The Men's Team Scores were close with a nail-biting finish and North Yorkshire just retaining their title by just one point with Lancashire pipped into 2nd. North Yorkshire ladies were also Team Winners two seasons running.
Here are the results of the last fixture. A further detailed report on the whole season and prize placings will be added soon.

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!
