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!


For 2022 we have created another 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 3 – Tuesday 2 August 2022- Marsden, GMP

Fixture #3 will now take place on Tuesday 2 August 2022 at Butterly Reservoir, Marsden starting at 1.30pm. Thanks to Shannon Davies and her team for organising this fixture.

Race Details from Shannon: GMPs fixture will be moving to Tuesday 2nd August, I can’t get released from shift on the 3rd - very sorry for the late notice on this but it can’t be avoided

Route will be starting at Butterly Reservoir and will be approx 7miles with 1000ft elevation. No road crossings thankfully but I will be putting up tape to ensure you stay on the right trail.

Parking:

Butterly Reservoir, Wessenden Rd, Marsden

W3W: ///troll.ulterior.scorching

Registration and Race Numbers:

From 12.30pm. Please bring your previously issued race number with you. If you have not yet registered I will issue a new number to you.

Race Briefing:

Pre-Race briefing will take place from the car park at 1.25pm. The race takes place on off-road trails and footpaths. Please wear the appropriate clothing and footwear to meet the conditions on the day. It could be warm or it could be cold so bring extra body cover and sun-block! The trails are open to the public so please take care and be respectful to other users.

Post-Race Refreshments:

GMP will be kindly providing some post-race light refreshments.

I think this is going to be another great fixture!! We will look forward to seeing you there!

Safe and happy running!
