Junior Cross Country Running

Cross Country can be really good fun, during recent years the popularity of this area of our sport has grown. Racing on grass, avoiding tree roots, running through mud and throw in the odd hill makes for a challenging event, but is great fun.

Cross country training sessions are arranged for Junior athletes, please contact your coach for information.

Altrincham & District AC, also organise and support local schools Cross Country League which is made up of 3 races within Trafford’s John Leigh Park and 3 races at Crossford Bridge in Sale.

Another Cross Country race in our club calendar is our Annual Cross Country Handicap event organised by Jeff Norman, followed by a prize giving ceremony.

We also encourage athletes to take part in local league events, normally made up of 5 matches during the winter months. These events start in the morning with Junior races and build up to senior races in the afternoons, dates can be found here.
