Parliament Hill is the home of cross country and an epic course. If you do one cross country in your life this is the one! It’s exciting and epic to take part and to spectate. Despite the Championship title this race is open to all current first claim club members over the age of 18 regardless of speed (make sure your EA registration is up to date!). The course is challenging but very manageable – hilly / undulating throughout and muddy in true cross-country style. This event is the London Marathon of Cross Country – people of all abilities from Olympians to casual weekend warriors lined up together and all getting covered in mud.
