Law Trust IOM Athletics Cross Country League 2019/20

IOM Athletics is pleased to provide details of the 2019/20 Law Trust IOM Athletics Cross Country League.

There will be two signing on nights before the first race on Wednesday 9th and Friday 11th October in Manx Harriers Club House from 6pm to 8.00pm.

At each race venue signing on will take place between 1pm and the start of the first race at 2pm, however, we encourage all athletes to sign up in advance and take the opportunity of entering the league, all four races, at a knock down rate of £18 for seniors (attached) or £10 for juniors. For unattached senior athletes the cost is £26 rather than the full fee of £28. Make sure you bring your cash or cheque book with you!

Early registration means no queuing on the day of a race (you must look after and remember to bring your number) – just turn up, warm up and be at the start line 5 mins before your race begins so saving you time and energy!!!

Full details of entry charges can be found on the entry form. The league race programme sees four events taking place over the winter with the 13th October being round one at Castle Rushen High School hosted by Manx Harriers. Northern AC host the second event on 3rd November with Manx Harriers again doing likewise at the Nunnery on the 1st December. The last event which is also the Isle of Man  Cross Country Championships takes place on 19th January and is hosted by Western AC. As ever, we expect some fantastic competition over the season, on some varied and interesting courses with results, photos and reports appearing in the press and here on the IOM Athletics website and Facebook sites.

Finally IOM Athletics wish to thank Law Trust for their very much appreciated sponsorship of this very popular and competitive series of league events.
