Billingham Marsh House Harriers compete in X Country events in the NYSD leagues. The x-country season runs throughout the autumn and winter.
These events are ran as a team and any interested members are very welcome to take part. The NYSD League is the local league made up of 7 races plus a relay. Positions in each race (in age group category) will contribute to your own personal league score and also towards the club / team score for each race and the overall league.
The club covers the entry fees for any club members who race. At the beginning of the season you are allocated a number which you keep for the whole series. For these events, teams will need to be entered in advance, and everyone wanting to run must be first claim to BMHH with a current EA registration number. Men’s teams have 6 runners and women’s teams have 4. If you are interested in taking part just let one of the coaches know.
Not only are the races good fun, they provide excellent training. Benefits of cross country running
