We all remember Cross-Country from our school days - it's brilliant fun splashing about in all that water and mud and being allowed to get away with it. We actively encourage this sort of behaviour!

Local Primary School races are suitable for all children from Year 1 to 6, We set up and coordinate the Wharfedale Primary Schools XC League competition for years 3 to 6 based on the results from locally organised School events.

Peco XC League races are suitable for all abilities and newcomers to competitive racing. There are two junior Challenge races: School Years 4-6 at 10am (1 mile) and Years 7-12 at 10.20 (2 miles). 2013/2014 Peco League results and tables can be found here

West Yorkshire League races are more suitable for the better runner and children over the age of 9 years.

We also have individuals and teams at the Yorkshire, Northern and National Cross-Country Championships.
