Sunday Cross Country League – Sunday, 16 October

It will be a busy start to the first weekend of the Serpie cross country season.  In addition to the opening Metropolitan League match, it’s also the first Sunday League race, hosted by Broxbourne Runners.

Location:  Cheshunt Park, Park Lane, Cheshunt, Herts, EN7 6QD

Start time: 11.00am.

Distance: c.5 miles with women and men running together in one race.

All race entries are taken on the day.

In order to maintain a good relationship with the Local Council and the Golf Club please be mindful of the following:-

There are no changing facilities, but toilets (always a long queue!) and refreshments are available in the Golf Centre.  Showers are NOT available.  Only food and drink purchased on site can be consumed on the premises.  Dirty shoes are not allowed on the premises.

Providing the ground is not too wet, a field will be available for car parking.  Follow the Marshals directions and car share as much as possible.  Please vacate the Parking Field a.s.a.p. after the race or you may be locked in!

The park is about 2 miles walk for Cheshunt Station (trains from Liverpool Street).

The course is the about 5 miles, with three laps of the Park.  Gently undulating.  The ground is usually suitable for ordinary trainers, trail shoes or alternatively, a short spike   Kit is usually left (unsupervised) near the finish point.  The start is in the adjacent field. 

It’s fair to say that this is a good course for cross country newcomers.
