Race news: RG Active Cross Country Racing in 2013

In 2013 RG Active will be hosting a number of Cross Country races to be held at the Redricks Lakes facility. If the thought of Cross Country takes you back to your school days and sends a shiver down you spine, we can empathise! However if you can answer yes to one, some or all of the questions below, then maybe it could be for you:

  • Do you like to compete against others?
  • Do you like the thought of gauging your fitness throughout the year by racing on the same course?
  • Do you like to get a little wet and muddy?
  • Do you like the thought of simply turning up for a race, doing the race and then going home? No t-shirt, no medal, no prizes. Just racing!
  • Do you like the idea of cheap racing?

So did you answer yes to any of the questions? Of course you did, so here's some more information about the Cross Country races we are offering.

What's the Race?

A Cross Country running race. The race will be set in the grounds of Redricks Lakes, so you can expect to be mostly running on grass/gravel.
