Haslemere Border AC compete in the Southern Cross Country League.
The League, previously known as the Hampshire Division of the Todays Runner Winter League, has 23 running clubs who compete in 6-7 multi-terrain events held between October and March. There are some 300 runners at each race and a team comprises 5 men and 3 women.
The emphasis of the league is to provide the ordinary club member with the opportunity to participate in a series of multi-terrain events. The atmosphere is to be enjoyable and social without the outright 'cut and thrust' associated with specialist cross-country leagues as such some of our very fastest runners will find they are ineligible under the league rules.
Details of the league can be found here http://www.bobayer.com/trwl/
All races start at 11am and the current year schedule is below, all runners need to wear a club vest to compete. Entry is free.
