The North Eastern Cross Country Championships is the most important regional fixture of our local winter calendar.

Even more importantly, this is also our Club Championship Race – the first athlete past the post in each age group becomes Club Champion for the year (provided they complete 8 races in the season). Don’t forget to give it your all on the day, it’s a nice trophy!

Entries now closed, a full list of entrants can be viewed here.

The venue, Temple Park at South Shields, has ample parking, although this is a Pay & Display car-park and costs 70p for the day. The course is fairly flat, with just a couple of short hills to provide a bit of challenge. New runners, don’t forget to check out our Advice for new athletes guide.

Here is a map of the course, we look forward to seeing you there:-
