Stowmarket Striders Cross Country
Haughley Park Sun 13th January 2013
Juniors Start 10:50am
Seniors Start 11:00am
At the beginning of every year, the Stowmarket Striders host one of the Suffolk County Cross Country series at Haughley Park.
Through a very picturesque and exclusive park, Haughley Park offers every element required to make a great cross country course. Two laps of woodland, dips, logs and fields test the runners over the 5 to 6 mile course.
Unfortunately for those of you wishing to run this, you must be a member of a running club taking part in the series as finishing is not the usual affair.
Stowmarket Striders will host their 2012/2013 series race on 13th January 2013. Results are held and distributed by the SCAA (Suffolk County Athletics Association).
Refreshments and toilets provided, but not chaning facilities this year.
