2018-19 Cross Country

Cross country season is now upon us!

2018-19 Club Cross Country Championship

As usual, the Manchester YMCA Harriers Cross Country Championship consists of nine races: the five races from the Manchester Area Cross Country League and the four races from the South East Lancs Cross Country League.

The leagues have struggled to secure suitable venues for this season; two of the Manchester Area League fixtures will be held at Kenworthy Woods, while two of the South East Lancs fixtures will be held at Heaton Park.

A fixture list and more information can be found at the 2018-19 Cross Country Championship page.
