You need to have Serpentine as your first claim club to be able to run for us in these events. Championship events also have various other qualification criteria but generally speaking, we will be able to arrange for you to take part in these races if you want to. Advance entries are necessary for all Championship events. Entries are co-ordinated on your behalf by the club. We need to submit entries to the race organisers about eight weeks before the race date. Therefore, you will need to contact the team manager, Lisa Pettit, at an early date to tell them if you want to run in these events.
English National Championships
These are the high point of the season and the pinnacle of domestic cross country racing. Every three years they are help on Parliament Hill and in the other two they are in either the northern or midlands region. We usually make an overnight trip of race day in those years so that we can celebrate in a local pub.
