NYSD Cross Country

The Harrogate League maybe over, but that only means one thing… Time to break out your spikes as the Cross Country season starts!! We’re hosting the first set of Relays, so lets have a good turn out and show ’em how it’s done!!

Cross-country is a tough discipline as courses can be hilly, muddy or even snow-covered. But it makes you strong and it’s a great way to progress your training.” – Mo Farah

The cross country (XC) season typically runs from mid September to March. Many athletes from club runners to elite athletes use cross country races in the winter months to build on and improve their strength and endurance running. Cross country running is very different from road and track running. Every year, even if a course layout remains the same, conditions under foot and weather conditions will change so it’s hard to compare one year to the next. But that in itself can be quite refreshing as the emphasis is not necessarily on your times or pace per mile – it can be more about the challenge that lies ahead whether that’s conquering the course, adapting to the varying terrain and winter weather conditions or competing against your nearest rival.
