PRESTON HARRIERS - CROSS COUNTRY
TrainingSessions take place at 10am on Saturday mornings (unless there is a XC fixture). Click here for more information.
Mid Lancs Cross Country
The Mid-Lancs League is the principal league that the Club competes in. It is a strong league with high numbers of participation and Preston Harriers compete across the full range of age-groups. Results and further information are posted at the Mid Lancs League website.
Headquarters for the Club at each race will normally be the club tent where bags can be left (at your own risk) and to allow simple changing facilities pre & post race if required.
To run in the Mid Lancs events, there is no individual fee and if you ran in 2011/12 a number should be available for you on your first run. The Club has updated the registration list for 2012/13 and if you did not run in 2011/12 then there may not be a number for you this coming season and you should leave time to register and collect a number if you intend running in 2012/13. Club vests must be worrn!
If you have not run before or there is no number for you at the club tent, you will need to register yourself at MID-LANCS REGISTRATION and collect a number. The number is meant to last for the whole season, so please look after it as best you can! Don't forget to take your Preston Harriers Membership Card!
There is however, a different number issued for Liverpool, as this is part of the UKA cross-challenge but also includes Liverpool & Mid-Lancs Leagues taking part on the same day so please do not use your first issued Mid-Lancs number but use the number that will be made available on the day and will be at the club tent. Please leave plenty of time before the Liverpool event if running, to collect your number.
