Cross Country 2021

Cross Country is a great way for athletes to keep fit in the off season. It also provides a great warm up or training run for other sports as well as the opportunity to meet with their friends from Little Athletics.

For parents, relax and enjoy a coffee with the paper while the kids enjoy catching up with friends and keeping fit!

Cross Country is a fun way for families to start the weekend whilst keeping fit at the same time.
