Sue Harrison - 5/3/2008

Shelli GordonDurham Fixture 2015Jim Bentley



 

Welcome to the

Northern Police Cross Country and Trail Leagues

 

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 11/12 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 2024 we are planning another Summer 10K Trail  Series. This year we will have four fixtures starting in April through to September 2024.

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

 




Latest XC Results - 2023/2024


Final Results - 2023/2024 Season!
Here are the final scores on the doors after a tremendous season! One or two of the original prize categories awarded after the race on Wednesday have changed slightly. This is as I explained, that it is to ensure that all the 'age' categories are filed one way or another.
So runners may well qualify for two prizes but will only take one. This is to allow a fair distribution of prizes overall. Without having my computer to hand soon after the race it isn't always easy to determine precise final position.
In short, all those who completed FIVE fixtures qualified for a prize this year!
Team Results
The team results were close and it was down to the last race to decide 1st and 2nd. The difference was a matter of one point!
1st Mixed Team - Cheshire
2nd Mixed Team - Humberside
3rd Mixed Team - Lancashire
Best Attendance of the Season
To make up for Humberside coming team runner-up, they undoubtedly provided the best attendance at all 11 races this season:
1st Humberside - 97 Attendees - Spot Prize Awarded
2nd - Lancashire 69 Attendees
3rd - Cheshire 41 Attendees
Finally....
Well done to everyone who has supported the League this season. Whether you have attended one race or most of the races, your support is always valued as it ensures the League can continue going forward. Please continue to give it your best support and spread the word among colleagues!!!
