Cross country running provides an incredibly effective and convenient way to stay in shape in the winter months
In the winter months many of the club members run in the Thames Valley X-Country league for Sandhurst Joggers
You can either run for SJ if you have joined Sandhurst Joggers or as a guest at £3 per race
The Thames Valley Cross Country League is based around 8 races held from October to February each year.
Events are held on Sundays with an 11:00 AM start time - each course is usually a mixture of woodland trails and parkland and is normally about 5 miles in length.
Originally sponsored by Today's Runner magazine, the original idea was that racing in the league should encourage friendly competition and ensure that everyone is able to participate in and enjoy the events. Although no longer sponsored by the magazine, the original spirit of the league is still stands.
Men and women teams compete in the same race with the first 6 men and first 3 women from each club scoring points. All abilities take part and even non-scorers can affect the result by getting ahead of scorers from other clubs, as the points are calculated based on overall race position of the scoring runner. To promote club spirit, club colours must be worn by any runner to score, and there must be a given number of veterans in the team
