Cross Country

Cross country running is a sport in which teams and individuals run a race on open-air courses over natural terrain such as dirt or grass. Sometimes the runners are referred to as harriers (dogs).  The course, typically 4–12 kilometres (2.5–7.5 mi) long, may include surfaces of grass, and earth, pass through woodlands and open country, and include hills, flat ground and sometimes gravel road. It is both an individual and a team sport; runners are judged on individual times and teams by a points-scoring method. Both men and women of all ages compete in cross country, which usually takes place during autumn and winter, and can include weather conditions of rain, sleet, snow or hail, and a wide range of temperatures.



2014 County Cross Country Championships


Buttersteep Swinley Forest Bracknell

The weather was poor, cold with heavy rain showers most of the day. The course was flooded in places, including the final finish but the track held up well.

Many thanks to all those, especially Bracknell AC, who were involved in the organisation, preparation and running the event on the day.
