K&D National XC Champs Day Trip – Sat 23rd Feb 2019


Once every three years the National XC Champs are held in the part of the country known as ‘The North’. Wherever that is. Therefore the K&D Committee have approved the subsidising of a trip to Harewood House in Leeds for ‘The National’.

The National is the greatest race in the UK running calendar. More than 10,000 over the day running XC. Men’s and women’s races with 1500+ competitors. From Olympic Finalists to 80 year old perenials. It’s the elite and club runners of all standards. A bucket list race steeped in history.

If more than we can accomodate on the coach apply what happens?

Men and Women’s Team Captains will pick their best teams of 7. Any spare seats will then be allocated first to those who have ran XC this season. Any remaining seats will then be drawn at random.

IF you aren’t able to join us on the coach we will still pay your entry fee should you want to travel by car on your own or with others.

How do I apply?


Note: While the club are subsidising the trip for runners we will ask for a £10 contribution to secure your place once confirmed. Coach hire is £500+ so we would kindly ask for the deposit to offset a small portion of the post and confirm your intention to run. £10 for travel to Leeds, race entry and travel home. Bargain.
