|Article:||The National XC Championships take place at Alton Towers in Staffordshire on Saturday 23rd February 2008.
Unlike previous years, you do not have to have competed in the Southern XC champs to qualify for the Nationals. You must however be a first claim member of HRR to run in a HRR team, and must run in our club colours.
Women run 8k and Men run 12k. There are also categories for Junior Men and Women (Ages 17,18 and 19) who run 10k and 5k respectively.
As mentioned in an email a few weeks ago, HRR have organised for some accommodation to be available for us on the Friday and Saturday night at YHA Gradbach (approx 15 miles away from Alton Towers). The accommodation is in Gradbach Farmhouse with accommodation for 19, self catering facilities, lounge area and 3 showers.
The entry form is carrying a tight deadline, so please could you let me know if you would like to enter by Thursday 3rd January. Please could you also let me know if you will be interested in accommodation. This is a lovely part of the country in the Peak District national park, so it's an ideal opportunity to take in the scenery, do some walking etc. Basically an opportunity for one of those classic HRR week ends away.
