It’s XC time and we are officially taking part in the 🏁 Met League Cross Country, it's a monthly series of 5 races as follow:

What is it ❓

Met League Cross Country is a set of five 7-8km races organised by London race clubs. They are held in parks around London with the routes including a mixture of grass, gravel and a little mud!

⏲️ Races are held in age groups for women and men. We take part in the Senior division.

  • Women's race will start around 13:30
  • Men's race will start around 14:30

Please arrived at least 20 minutes early to warm up and get your race number, also Men should arrive at the start of women race to cheers on πŸ”₯!

This is how the scoring works πŸ…

  • All races are scored on a reverse scoring basis, i.e. if there are 50 athletes in a race, the first finisher shall score 50 points, the 50th finisher 1 point.
  • So your time doesn't matter, it's your finishing position. But it is the taking part that we really care about!
