Does the club take part in any Cross-Country leagues?
Knutsford Triathlon club are part of the MACCL Cross Country league which are a series of local monthly races held from October to February, ranging from 4.5 to 6 miles in length.

These races are certainly not just for the faster members of the club. They are an opportunity for all of us to have a good hard run which will do much to benefit our progress and core strength. Use them as a training session or to build experience of a race situation. As you tend to compete against the same people month on month it provides a good measure (and incentive!) of how you are getting on throughout the season.

These races are really well attended and have a great atmosphere with runners of all abilities taking part, making them less intimidating for newcomers.

Spikes or at least off-road shoes are strongly advised and it costs just £5.00 for the full race season!

To take part you need:

  • EA membership
  • Knutsford Tri membership
  • a club vest or T-shirt must be worn
