SEAFORD STRIDERS compete in the East Sussex Sunday Cross Country League, during the winter months. This is a great time to build up your stamina whilst enjoying the East Sussex countryside (fields, hills & woods). This is an opportunity for you to discard your watch and forget about times or PB’s, and get involved in some real head to head racing.
East Sussex cross country league
The Sunday season usually starts in October each year with the first of a six race programme with the last event being in spring of the following year.
Each event starts at 11am and are a distance of 5 miles. There are also junior races (age 8 to 16) starting at 10.30am over distances of 1.5 to 2 miles. Cost is £3 each on the day for adults and free for juniors up to the age of 16, however if you want to pre-register for all 6 races you can do so at a cost of £12.50, therefore saving £7.50 if you plan to compete in all 6 events. The other benefits of pre-registering are you keep the same race number, which you bring to all 6 events, therefore you don’t have to queue and enter on the day.
