Welcome Relays

On the 6th October we have the Welcome Relays at Wollaton Park (situated close to the University). This is a fun and sociable - yet competitive! - event and we will go to Mooch afterwards to wind down with some drinks and food!

Meet at the David Ross Sports Village entrance at 12:30 on 6th October and we will walk to Wollaton Park together. 

Cross Country

North Midlands XC league

The North Midlands Cross Country league features 4 races during the Winter outdoor season. The lengths of each race are 10km for Men and 6km for Women. The dates for the 18/19 season are:

13th October:  Derby 
10th November: Kettering
1rd December: Heanor
12th January:

We travel by coach to all of these races and the cost is £6 for the race entry and transport.

 

East Midlands XC League

A relaxed league suitable for any regular runner, the East Midlands league features four Sunday morning races during the Winter season. Typical race distances are 5km for Women and 8km for men, and we encourage anyone and everyone to give it a go!

 

University Relays

We take part in several University XC relays throughout the year. These are for athletes with a range of abilities and transport and race entry is £5. The University relays that we are entering this year are:

 Manchester Relays - Saturday 27th October

 Leeds Relays - Saturday 1st December

 

BUCS XC

BUCS Cross Country consists of 3 races at the end of January/start of February. Typically, the Mens A race covers 12km, Mens B covers 8km and the Womens race 7km. Then, after a day of hard running, all of the teams come together to celebrate as the only way student athletes can with a massive afterparty! This year BUCS XC is on Saturday 2nd February at Exeter!

 

Track and Field

Our Track and Field Group is aimed at anyone interested in training for track and field events. However, we advise any middle/long distance athletes to train with the distance squad during the winter then move onto the track in the spring. During the autumn and winter the squad concentrates on the Indoors Season, and then the Outdoors season during the spring and summer. We take part in a number of fixtures throughout the year. BUCS Indoors in February and BUCS Outdoors form the main focus; additionally we take part in both Indoor and Outdoor Opens such as the Leeds Met University Open and the Steel Cup. The captains will provide a fixture list for the term and notify members of upcoming races and how to sign up for them, for most races this will be via the Students Union website. The normal charge for a race is £5 including transport (weekends away like BUCS will cost more, and you must sign up by the deadline specified by the captains to get your place).

 

Road running

We usually enter local road races in the spring/summer term. These races are yet to be confirmed.
