Southern Cross Country League (SXCL)
Southern Cross Country League consists of 21 clubs in the Hampshire Division who compete in 6-7 multi-terrain events (hosted by different member clubs) which are held at various locations around the county between October and March.
The events are good fun and we are always keen to field complete teams and do well in the league.
The men's league requires five for a team and the women's league requires three.
Races are approx 5m. All races start at 11am and entrance is free for participants - as it's paid for by the Club!
