The cross country season is an important part of Halifax Harriers' programme, keeping us all busy throughout the winter and providing an excellent aerobic endurance base for our Track and Field athletes. Most importantly, it's fun.
We have teams from Under 11s up to Seniors and Vets running in the West Yorkshire Cross Country League. We punch well above our weight, many of our athletes coming away with medals last year.
We also compete in the Yorkshire Championships, the Nationals and we support our younger athletes who compete in the various schools championships.
Our under 17 Boys team won the trophy for top Northern Club at the Nationals in 2012.
Through the winter months, Brian often holds extra endurance training sessions on Sunday mornings, 11.00am down at Manor Heath Moor (by the cafe).
