See details below or download PDF: BA XC Event Details
Start your 2019 off with the first local XC race of the year. Organised by Insch Trail Runners and JSK RC, this is a new event to the calendar and run on the fields behind BA Stores. There is a choice of either a 4k or 8k race (or both if you’re that way inclined!).
This is a senior race only (must be 17 or over) and entry will be on the day. There will be cash prizes for main winners of each race along with the usual age category prizes. Details of the race start times as follows.
8K race – £10 (£8 for SA Member) – 1.30pm Start
2 undulating laps going across the grass fields and out through the trees (see course map for details). About 70% grass and 30% gravel/dirt path. Suitable for spikes *
*Note: Whilst we believe the route is suitable for spikes there are a few larger stones and tree roots when going through the tree section. We advise runners take a second pair of trail shoes and assess that area of the course prior to the race.
4K race – £7 (£5 for SA Member) – 11.30am Start
2 undulating laps solely on good quality grass (same route as the 8k but without the extension through the trees). Suitable for spikes. Ideal race for runners wanting to try out XC for the first time.
The site does have plenty room should any clubs want to take along a gazebo (could be handy with the weather in January).
